Hi Ladies. I was hoping to get some advice from other mama's about my almost 13 year old daughter. On Friday my husband noticed that she had carved a JB (for Justin Beiber) carved into the top of her hand. I am very upset about this and am terrified that she could be on the road to more self harming behavior. I adopted her from foster care and there is a history of mental illness in her birth family and that worries me even more. So tell me Mama's am I overreacting by panicking and calling the doctor to get a referral for counseling and making sure she is close to me and not alone? She was in counseling for several years but they felt it was no longer needed for her. I guess they were wrong:/ Please help, I am very worried!
