Trish940 asks:

Will making her embarrassed about it help?

My 9th grade daughter has cut herself 3 times (as far as I know) but I think she is doing it for attention, she isn't trying to hide it, she cuts the inside of her arms. She wears short sleeves. She never did this  until she met a girl in group therapy who did it. She is getting together with a boy she likes this weekend, I want to tell her to wear long sleeves because she doesn't want the boy to think she is a freak.
Is it wrong to make her feel embarrassed about it?

She also wants to be a model, should I point out she will never be a model with scars all over her arm?
