So I really don't know how to start this....but this morning my daughter was mad at me for not letting her stay home from summer camp so she could play with her friend. She of course was crying loudly over something I thought was silly and of course went to summer camp. I picked her up from summer camp after work and they asked me if we had a cat because my daughter, who is 10, told them our cat scratched her and it was itching. I looked at her arm and it was not cat scratches, I noticed right away what pattern they were in. She had used a fork to cut her arm all because she was mad at me. I asked her if that resolved anything, and her answer was no but I felt better after I did it. What should I do? She has an appointment the 6th to see a doctor for behavioral health. Do I punish her for this behavior? I'm scared.
