I feel like my daughter is cutting again. I just don't know what to do. She knows she can talk to me anytime. I have tried everything I know to help. Her father and I have walked on eggshells for months. We try not to upset her. We try spending more time with her. I take her shopping. We got her a cell phone to keep her busy texting so she want think of it as much. She tell me if I home school her that thing would be better for her. She would have less stress. The truth is that I am not able to do that and she would try to get out of doing her work. She says that only if her birth mother really loved her she wouldn't cut. Well since we filled for custody of our daughter, her mother has started showing some interest. If it is real or not is left to be seen. It's like I want cut of you do this or if you do that. I honestly don't know how much I can take. She is so rude and hateful to her father. He worships the ground she walks on. Nothing he does for her is good enough. He tries spending more time with her. She don't care. Sometimes it feels like she is test her limits of what all she can get from us. Her birth mother can do the simplest things for her or show her a little attention and she is the hero. I really hope and pray her mother would be the mother that she needs. She hasn't in 12 yrs and longer for our son. It took getting custody papers to change her or act like it anyway. Like I said I am at a dead end and don't know what to do but therapy, which she does not want..... What to do????
