Cutting or Self-Harm

Cutting and other forms of self-harm are a lot more common than you may think. It can be very difficult for you, as a parent, to understand how your child could hurt themselves, and it may make you angry to see them do so. What you need to understand is your child is not trying to anger you with these actions. There is often an underlying issue and your teen is dealing with their pain inside by creating pain on the outside. It’s often much easier to deal with outside physical pain than it is to deal with the emotional pain your child is dealing with. There are many different types of self-harm and all of these needs to be taken very seriously.

Cutting is the most common form of self-harm, but your teen may cut on areas of the body where people are not likely to see. These cuts may be long or several small gashes made across their skin. Your teen may use a knife or another sharp tool to create the cuts, and when they cut themselves, they get a feeling of relief. Some teens also harm themselves in other ways, such as; burning, pinching or snapping a thick rubber band violently against their wrist. Any type of behavior that shows your child purposely inflicting pain on themselves is considered to be self-harm and you need to get this problem addressed immediately. If you allow your child’s problem to go unrecognized, it can lead to further problems down the road such as drug abuse, and possibly even attempted suicide.
