Body mutilation by school girls

February 4, 2007 9:18pm CST
I read in the papers last week about a group of girls were found by their teachers to have slash marks on their legs and arms. These girls attend a all girls school. The principal and parents were notified of this incidence and the girls are receiving counselling for their acts. Apparently, it is thought that it is cool to have such marks done. I think peer pressure also has to do with this behaviour. Also it is reported that girls are more likely to succumb to such acts than boys. Scarry though.

well the sad thing is that my teenage son has done this. he is bipolar and when his meds wear off and he gets in one of his moods, he has done this. i know that it is not right, and he is in counceling but does not go all the time. it really is sad to see the children doing this.
