Generally day dreaming is not bad, unless it is interefering with her concentration levels when she is at school or doing her homework!
It is now widely believed that daydreaming may be good for everyone and that it is a way of relieving stress by taking the mind away from problems and helping it just 'go with the flow'.
The brain has two sides to it, the left hand and the right hand. The left deals with logical thinking, reason, mathematical abilities etc. The right hand side deals with emotions, intuition and artistic qualities. So when day dreaming we are actually getting in touch with the right hand side of the brain. Consequently daydreaming has its uses.
That being said try to encourage your child not to daydream when she should be concentrating or doing something. Then allow her the time and space to dream away when she is relaxing or during playtime. In this way she can channel the daydreaming to appropriate times thereby ensuring her left hand side of the brain also gets used.

I daydream a lot too and I'm 12. I am not sure if it is normal though because I do it at school and when I do my homework and stuff. I don't have friends and I day dream about me havin crowds and crowds of friends and I daydream about stuff I want to do but can't.
