Every time I see this I wonder......

There are several scenes where Christina is specifically asked to be good because her mother has an important event and she deliberately irritates her mother and causes a fight. Did Christina approve this movie? Because it kind of makes the young Christina look like a conniving brat

No, Christina didn't approve the movie. The studio bought the rights to the book and she attempted to buy them back and failed. She said she saw the movie once and was upset that so much had been changed.
