I've been a diabetic for 10 years now. I would recommend a pump for your daughter because with syringes and pens are very uncomfortable too some people and it's a pain too get out and draw the medicine. But with the pump it's very good because you're only changing the sites once every 3 days and not a big hassle. The only thing that you would want to watch with the pump is, if you do not rotate it will lead to bad bruising. And it can get infected. And you don't want that. But as long as you're doing the rotating well. I got mine when I was 7.
