  • Take her to the doctor?

    I would, being that she's so young.

  • Take her to the dr and a therapist. I've heard people say that kids that age can't possibly get depressed and kids that age that talk about suicide don't know what they're talking about. That is crap! I was depressed and suicidal as a child and well in to my teens but not a soul ever tried to help me. When I tried to talk to my mother I was told to stop whining. Teachers complained about me being quiet and retiring but not one ever thought to ask why; probably because I got good grades anyway, the work was far too easy for me so I never needed to expend any effort.

  • i don't want to scare you, but speaking from personal experience, keep a very close eye on all men around her. i have experienced this myself when i was young, and 2 of my step daughters (while in mothers care) have been messed with as well. i hope this is not the case of your daughter!!!!!!!
