My daughter (age 11) has been pulling at her hair. It started last year with her eye lashes and eye brows but has moved onto pulling from the bottom of her head. I know, it sounds like the craziest thing for a child to do so I called a Psychologist. I met with her last week and she says its normal, just like any other habit. Which makes sense because daddy and sister bite their nails.
She doesn't realize she's doing it and gets frustrated when doing her hair because she now has huge bald spots.
Does anyone have any kind of advice that can maybe help steer her away from the hair plucking?
