Hiya ladies,
My DD who's 14 went through a rough patch recently. She had self harmed but since having a chat she hasn't done so for around 7 months.
The other night she told me about a boy who she was very close to, had started saying he self harms and has done for the past year. My DD knows this is not true, as they were very close. This started after she told him about her self harm recovery. He's also supposed to have told one of her friends that she's lying about her self harm and has called her an attention seeker to this friend. I have also been told he can be quite emotionally blackmailing and controlling. He's 15.
The reason this has annoyed me is my daughter bbroke down crying the other night over this, and she admitted to have relapsed (self harmed again) due to this. It upsets me to see her like this again sad What should I do?

Oh EffyS! That's so hard. At least when they were small you could soothe away their hurt.

I don't have the answer I'm afraid, but didn't want you to go unanswered! Hopefully some wise soul will be along soon!

he's a bully, and probably lacking and jealous. Can you report to the school?

she needs to be convinced to see that the guy is a jerk and not worth the worry. Easier said than done, I know.
