given her age, there may be times where hormonal activity leads to high emotional sesitivity. In the early teen years it is very common for boys and girls to struggle with a surge in their emotions, and often it feels out of control for them. It is also a time of being very self-conscious and as a result jokes directed at a yound teen can feel like criticism, even when it very clearly isn't. For the next while it will be an emotionally bumpy ride. Things may well settle themselves, but something to watch out for is low self-esteem. If this is evident, then its worth thinking about a therapeutic intervention.
