Many teens today struggle with self harm and the practice of cutting or branding themselves.
If you’re a parent and have a teen struggling with this issue you need someone to talk to. Please click the “LIVE CHAT NOW” button at the top of the page so we can help. By keeping your issue a secret you are giving it power to destroy your teen, your family, and your life. The shame you may feel as a parent can spread as a cancer into your thoughts, actions, and relationships. Isolation is the worst way to live a full life, because it convinces a person that no one needs to know, that no one really understands, and ultimately, that no one really cares. That’s not true! Life on life community, and sharing these issues with people who truly care about you and your family, is the best way for anyone to flourish in their understanding of self, others and God. However, when we spend all our energies protecting our secret from the world this mindset can create an independence stronghold that feels true but is a lie really killing you from the inside out.
