I am new to this and I have a 14y/o stepdaughter that has turned to injuring. I have been reading blogs, websites and articles for weeks that all say teens who injure will hide the marks and not let anyone know. I have a very different situation. My teen mainly injures if she is being punished for inappropriate behavior and immediately tells us that she has hurt herself. There are only a few times that she hasn’t told us. When she is grounded from her phone we try to let her have the computer and house phone to communicate with friends (although I know many teens text or chat now). I just feel that everything I am reading has contradicted my situation. Has anyone had any experience with the small amount of teens who injure for attention?
