Help With Teen Daughter & School*SH*
« on: May 29, 2012, 07:19:20 PM »
i am new to this. My daughter,age 14, started harming a few months ago after a friend who did it dared her. Since then she has made an awful mess on her arms cutting, b**ning and scribing. She has been seen by the doctor and child and mental health team. The school has told me it is their policy to permanently exclude her if it doesn't improve as they can't take responsibility and to refer her to social services as she is at risk(from herself) I was quite appalled, as I felt that this was not at all helpful. Is this usual?

Unfortunately it is usual. I was excluded from my school,although not permanently, because of self harm and attempted suicide. Its so that the school can not be held responsible for anything. The school may ask for a meeting and you and your daughter will be able to talk things through with them. Hopefully your daughter won't be excluded but the child mental health team will help you and your daughter to keep her in school.

They cannot exclude her if its self harm, they would have to have a lot of reasons and then there have to be something in place for her my advice speak to the head of the school and welfare.
