I co-parent a 13 year old female who has been caught self-cutting a few times over the past year. Anyone else have similar experiences?

Firemom: I wouldn't push her to tell anyone. Again, this can make the guilt worse. When she's ready to talk about it she will. (Like those of us here) If she's not ready to confront it within herself it's not fair to force her to confront it in front of others. That's my experience...
I've never told her to tell anyone, but she wants me to tell them. She only wants the close relatives to know and they have all talked to her freely about and it and so has she. So I would think its a good thing?
Everyone has been non judgemental and they all just tell her how much they care about and love her.
