my 15 year old daughter cuts herself. We are seeking professional help for this but I need help now. I want to go up to her and threaten her to make her stop. I want to take away things and punish her. I am so angry that she does this and she even thinks it's ok to do it. As she says, "lots of kids do it". I see her as a brat who is not getting her way with our house rules, so she has taken her anger to the next level. could this be true? I am also so embarrassed for our family. We live in a small community and she talks about it with her friends so people must know. Why hasn't anyone called me? Her friends parents? Why aren't the kids speaking up, if they know someone is doing this? I found out by reading her email and texts. Should I keep reading her private stuff? It makes me crazy to read but I feel compelled to do so. How can we trust her again? and how can she trust us? confused....
