My DD is 11yo. She was a wonderful little kid and then was molested and everything has changed. I don't want to blame her behavior on that but it might be relevlant to what is going on so included it.
Today while I was at work she cut her 3yo sisters hair with nail clippers and then before I even got in the door (she met me at the van) to tell me about it and told me not to tell her dad. She had almost a smirk on her face. She knows better. I took her phone and DS away and made her help me put groceries away. I was furious simply because at 11, seriously?!
I talked with her about the voice in her head telling her not to do it and she said she didn't know if there was one. I said so there was nothing telling you you shouldn't do this? She said yes there was. I told her that is your brain telling you not to do this and you need to listen to it. I asked her why she did it and she said I don't know.
I am seriously at a loss as what to do. I did thank her for telling me. I wonder if she is testing the water thinking if she tells me she won't get in trouble. I don't want to to continue making bad choices but I also don't want her to NOT tell me.
Any advice would be helpful. Thanks
