I have a 12yr old daughter who's fond of pulling her hair. At first, I didn't notice it but I got shock when i saw her head have small spots of baldness.. can anyone help me what to do? I kept telling her not to pull her hair but I think shes doing it unconsciously while watching tv and or while studying..

It's called trichotillimania and she needs to go and see a therapist. She is harming herself by doing this and could make sores. This is no joke, it is an OCD and can cause some serious damage.
