Mom, find out more about the problem. Discuss it with your daughter's teachers, for a start. Maybe she is having problems, and they can help to identify what these are and how to deal with them. Maybe she's being too demanding of herself, and undervalueing the quality of her work.
And talk more to your daughter about everything that's going on in her life round now. Is she getting depressed about something ? are problems arising at school like bitchy friends or bullying ? has there ben a change of teacher, either losing a favourite teacher, or gaining an unpleasant one ?
