    She doesn't talk back and is well mannered BUT she is sneaky, getting bad grades and cutting!!! I'm at a loss for what to do anymore.... I just want what's best for her!! We have done counseling and meds.. Thought we were better and now she just took 10 steps backward!! :(

    My daughter and I talk all the time about issues but When I upset her it's like her way of getting back at me is cutting .. She says that the physical pain helps relieve the emotional pain ..

      She doesn't skip school. But she went in my purse to get back her ipod she was grounded from.. She cuts herself when she gets upset.. I will not just let her get away with stuff for fear she will hurt herself!! I need her to understand that this is not ok and will not be tolerated!!! I'm soo stressed yesterday was a horrible day and no one I know can relate as most of my friends have kids under 10.

      I am NOT a professional but if I was you I would definitely get outside help. Call a professional and get advice right away. I grew up with some cutters, they would always say they did it because feeling something was better than feeling nothing. Please seek out help, she may not respond directly to a therapist, but if you can get some help understanding what's going on and what steps you should take, I think you would be more successful.
