SHE (12 YO) STARTED CUTTING HER WRIST AROUNG MAY OF THIS YEAR I TALKED TO HER A LOT TOLD HER WE LOVE HER AND EXPRESS HOW WE WOULD FEEL IF SHE WASN'T  WITH US ANYMORE. SHE KIND OFF STOPED, BUT BEFORE SCHOOL YEAR WAS OVER IN JUNE SHE TOLD THE NURSE AT SCHOOL I HAD HIT HER SO NURSE CALLED THE POLICE ALONG CAME CPS THEY DID THEIR INVESTIGATIONS AND CLOSED THE CASE BUT NOW I DISCOVERED SHE CUT AGAIN. SHES ALWAYS HAD A RECORD OF LYING EVEN FOR THE SMALLEST THINGS. I TRIED TO EXPRESS TO HER THAT LYING WON'T DO ANY GOOD IN REGARDLESS HOW MUCH TROUBLE SHE GETS INTO HONESTY IS THE KEY TO EVERYTHING.

Hi there.  Your daughter is in need of psychological help.  She is out of control and needs intervention.  Please contact a child psychologist ASAP or even a child psychiatrist (she may need to be on meds) to get her in to be seen.  There are a lot of things going on with her and her state of mind needs to be figured out.    She will not stop unless intervention is given.
