Over the past few years I’ve covered many serious parenting issues between my other stories. I spend a lot of time with teens. I hear a lot of things about their struggles. Self harm is an issue they all talk about. I heard more about it when my daughter was in Middle School, but it is there in High School, College, and with adults. It hides under clothing. It hides under lies and heart break.
Talk to the kids in your life. Not just AT them but to them and WITH them. Listen. Learn. Don’t judge. Be there for them. You’re the adult. Be there for them.
