A little back history. We moved to the town we live in now about 2 years ago. when we moved here my daughter was starting 6th grade middle school. She always did great in the other school. she was honor roll ect.. we moved here and she changed.
This year she is in 7th grade in Nov. we had her baker acted for threatening to kill herself. we got home and everything was fine. 2 days ago i found cuts on her wrist. WHen ask her why she did it she don't answer me says she don't know.
Why do people cut themselves. I don't understand why she does it. btw, she has friends who are doing the same thing and i try to keep her from hanging with them but I can't control who she hangs with at school.
btw, i tried therapy after she was baker acted and it didn't work. they put her in play therapy and she is 13, that won't work with her.
My 10 year old goes to church and I am wanting to get her in there for therapy. I have been talking to my neighbor who is very active in this church. we don't go to church, my husband is atheist. i am not but my daughter now says she is . but i am lost right now. I don't want to force her to go to church but i don't know what else to do. I am scared i am going to lose my daughter.
I would like to think you ladies for all of your advice and in helping me understand what my daughter is dealing with. I feel that nobody can really understand unless you have been there and that is the main reason for this post because i was hoping maybe someone who has done it can help me understand since she won't talk to me about it.
My husband and I decided that i was going to quit my job so i can be home 24/7 to try to help my daughter. I was a sahm for 7 years and started working 1 1/2 years ago. now out my income isn't needed so we decided I would quit so I can try to dedicate more time to my children mainly her.
once again thank you ladies.
