Where can. 11 year old girl go that is sassy and unruly don't listen and at the point of shipping her off is there any help

That's pretty normal for teen/preteen girls! You gotta use discipline & stick to it!
If you take her computer, keep it until she earns it back etc...
It'll work out, trust me, I've been there!
My smart mouth teen daughter is now a 30 yr old Mom of 3, working for Dept. of Homeland Security!
She recently apologized for her teen behavior & thanked me for not giving up on her! She's a very successful woman!
Believe me, when I say she was a handful, there were days when I wanted to strangle her!
If it gets too bad, try counseling!

Well, there is your problem. An 11 yr old should not be getting eveything. No child should. Set boundaries and stick to them. Let her throw her tantrum like a 2 year old. And just like a 2 yr old she will eventually learn it doesn't work.

Find a few local "street-walkers" and leave her with them for a few hours. (staying close by of course). They WILL set her straight.

Maybe you should look at your parenting skills. Is this how you handle her....Telling her, I'll ship you off. She's your daughter, not an unruly goat.

I find it hard to believe a mother wants her 11 year old gone. Maybe she senses the "unwanted" feeling and therefore acting out. How much time do you spend with your daughter. What does her dad think? Have you tried family counseling? Getting rid of your daughter is a horrible thing. Maybe look at yourself and what you might be doing wrong.

All teenagers are like this (try my sister). But if you really don't think you can handle her, try boarding school

bootcamp doesn't work. Bootcamp straightens them out for a while but you can't change then that way. Be a better parent maybe?

Try to actually discipline her. Take away her things and ground her when she does something you don't like. Parents don't seem to do that anymore! The minute she lies, talks back, brats out, take away stuff. Don't be her friend, be her parent. Don't give her everything she wants; tell her no, and no means no. :)

Let's see, I bet she likes to fix her hair and wear makeup. If she does, take them all away, curling iron too.
Tell her when she can act right, she can have one thing back at a time.
If she doesn't fix her hair or wear makeup, take away the things she uses, TV, phone, take everything out of her room but the bed. You'll get her attention trust me, works everytime.

Some kids need a good ol' fashioned time out. No hanging with friends, No electronics. To school and back. To make sure she comes straight home if you can pick her up at the end of the day. It will show her she can't do whatever she wants. And then if she gets to out of hand, send her to a counselor.
