My 14 year old sleeps for a very few hours when she comes home from school and I'm not sure what to think of it. She is very active and plays sports but, she's has had problems with self mutilation. Her old counsler told me that it could be abuse that was making her self injure but, she won't admit to any abuse by her father or step mother and since her counsler told me this my daughter said she's fine and doesn't need to go anymore. I have also recently seen that she's having an extremely hard time sleeping. Eaither she can't get to sleep or she twist and turns in her sleep from nightmares. It has gotten so bad that at times she'll begin to scream. I'm not sure how to help. Any advice?
