    I recommend the following:

    1. Use the current Apple ID for purchases only. By doing so, you can keep track of what is downloaded and purchased.
    2. Create two different iCloud accounts - one for each device. This will provide you both with a bit of privacy. Emails, text messages, etcetera will not be received on the wrong device. As a parent, I recommend YOU create the accounts and keep the information in a safe place. You can always login to your daughter's iCloud account via a computer if necessary.
    3. After creating the accounts, make sure you download and install the Find My iPhone app to locate the devices if lost or stolen, and to keep tabs on your daughter, if necessary. You can even go to Settings - General - Restrictions - Location Services on your daughter's iPhone and select "Don't Allow Changes" to prevent her from disabling the feature unless she knows the restrictions passcode.

    Anyway, I hope i was helpful to you. Take care...

    To add on to what D stated, you'll also want to go to settings > iMessage > Send & Receive and make sure you select the correct number or email address you would like to use to get messages for your specific device. Follow the same steps for FaceTime (settings > FaceTime > Send & a Receive).

    Right, you don't want to receive each other's iMessages.
