I've heard SEVERAL people talk about that issue at right around that age. Every time, though, it's a boy!
Have you ever let her skin go and let her see how bad it can get? Peer pressure will likely help a lot come school starting. Another possibility is have someone that isn't mom talk to her about it. A lot of kids that age will listen to their doctor or teacher or a friend's mom when their own mom just isn't cool enough anymore.
It's a fun age. I used to teach that age, and I promise, they outgrow it if you don't kill them first!
