What is the cause for my daughter not to get sleep ?

My 12yr old daughter is having trouble falling asleep. this has never happend before, she usually can fall asleep right away. She usually goes to bed at 9 but for the past two days she finally falls asleep at 1 am or 1:30. she says that she can t fall asleep even how much she tries. I have given her sleeping pills to fall asleep i think they worked. Do you have any suggestions to whats happening and hopw to get her back to sleep.

Hi, Claire,
Thanks for query,
It seems that at this age due to hormonal changes taking sleep disturbance is there.
Advice her to remain busy all day,have some physical activity,
Go for regular exercise daily.Before going to bed have light music,good reading and wearing loose clothes.
Never give her sleeping pills as they are habit forming.
Ok and bye.
