It is a temporary phase. Do not worry. Instead build your rapport through positive communication. When she does something observe. If it is positive behaviour appreciate. If it is not sit with her and resolve by getting her opinion and seeking alternatives. Help her see the other side using examples and stories. During this age it is very common to imitate and copy friends. It will pass. Gently guide her. If she imitates a behaviour ask how else she can react or respond. Allow her to think. Conversation has to be very objective and neutral. Also seek her teachers help. At this age children listen to teachers more. Take care.
