HiPlease help I don't know what to do. I told my daughter off yesterday for telling a silly fib. I tried to explain that the fib was so irrelevant so lying just made it worse. She got very upset crying and regretted that she told the lie. I asked her to wash up after dinner, I went to check on her and she jumped and hid the knife under a tea towel. when I realised what she was doing I asked her to show me her arm that she had put behind her back. She had 'banged' the knife up her forearm and has small cuts/scratches. I asked her why and she said 'I felt it was the only way' she said 'it felt like the sadness was coming out'.I believe her when she says that this was the first time. She has promised that it wont happen again, she regrets it and it stings, she has asked me not to tell her dad. and says if she feels like doing it again, she will come to me before she does. We have a very strong relationship and she said that if I hadn't caught her she would have shown me (I don't know how true this is, id like think she would have) .What do I do now? trust her that she wont do it again and it was a moment of 'madness' I am worried sick, I don't know what to do for best, I feel like this all my fault, I've let her down.
