I have a 16 year old step daughter who has done "cutting" and I can't seem to get her father or mother to understand how serious this issue is! I mean, since I am not a parent, I have no authority to take her to counseling or try to get her help! What can I do? I've talked with her father and he's starting to "get" it but with him gone a lot with the military he's never around long enough to really spend time with her and do something about it! She's crying out for attention and no one is there to help! Anyone have any advice?
