my daughter is 11 yrs. she has been saying things such as i hate myself and i just want to die. she got grounded this week for lying to me.(which she has'nt been grounded for ages) she went to her room and cried for hours then she wrote me a note that said i hate myself and i want to die. last night i told her it was time for bed she went to her room crying and came out telling me she just wants a knife to stab herself. she is sad sometimes but i never heard those type of words coming from her. i dont know if she is just mad about being grounded or needs help. if she is looking for attention what can i do and if she is depressed how do i go about finding help?
