Yes cutting your self is something to worry she should not. Be doing that you as her mom try to help her talk to her sometimes it happens when there is a problem you cant deal with teens know a days use any methods to harm themself to forget or feel better get help for her ask in school if there is something wrong class mates ....

I would think that is an obvious "yes" but since you don't give any details whatsoever, I don't want to be too judgmental. What is she cutting with? How often? Have you noticed any pattern or picked up any triggers? Have you checked the rest of her body to make sure she is not cutting elsewhere? I would recommend you do some research on cutting and self harming behavior.

Ofcourse you should take it serious.Try talk to her to find out why she is doing it.She might need therapy.
