I believe that I can help. Other than the pictures on the wall, does your daughter have any other behaviour that you find troubling?
not really , seams to be very sensitive to critacysm at shool
What kind of criticism is she getting?
Is she a good student?
Is she insecure about her social life?
Is she going through puberty normally?
she is going through puberty and thinks everyone should like her,not every populer though
She is changing rapidly both physically and mentally. Her self-image is changing and is not stable, which is typical of children her age. She is a certain way now but that is ending.
She puts up the picture as a measure of stability, or trying to slow down these changes which are hard to accept.
If she is not as popular as she would like to be her self-esteem suffers. She may not have all the friends that she wants so she has herself and uses the pictures to fill her life with people who care about her, since she does not have pictures of lots of others as some other girls might.
She is lonely as well.
There are a combination of reasons all due to the instability of her changing image and putting up the photos makes her feel more secure.
There is nothing really wrong with her. It is not a mental disorder, not a personality disorder, but just an indication that she needs some assurance and help in making this transition from childhood to womanhood.
ok thankyou very much something to think about
