supoort for child whose friend is cutting?
Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction. My daughter has a friend who had been cutting. My daughter told me and her principal and the little girl is getting the help she needs. The problem is that my daughter has stopped replying to her friend's messages. She says she just feels to overwhelmed with her friend's problems. I have respected her feelings and have not intervened as I feel that it is right for my daughter to step back if she wishes. On the other hand the little girl's mother is calling wanting to know why, afraid that her little girl will relapse. What is an appropriate response? & Is there any place where I can find support for my daughter? She isn't the one who was cutting but she can't understand why her friend would harm herself. These kids are only 12
