I am becoming increasingly worried about how influenced my daughter (13yr)is with troubled children,ie;self harmers & depression.I know self harming happens in this pier group i just dont understand why especially at such a young age.

I dont understand why children of that age feel the need to self harm,this didnt come into conversation at all with my eldest at that age.The most worrying thing for her and her friends was when/where the next sleepover.The girls that are in my youngest group seem to have the worries of the world on their sholders.I have tried so hard to tell her it is ok to listen and help but not to get to involved in the emotion because she is too young and is dealing with her own emotions with growing up.

Not sure I understand. Self harm happens in every age group.

Does she hang out with kids at risk?

It happens at such a young age because they are in that much emotional pain
