What are you sharing: Ask a Cop

Message: Why are so many young kids cutting themselves? And why don't their parents know? Should I tell them? Will they even believe me? How can I help these pre-teens before it is too late?

The answer; 

Thanks for the question. To pinpoint an exact reason would be impossible. Some do it for attention, others as "copycats" and some due to depression and mental illnesses.

I strongly recommend you let their parents know. At least the school counselor or another adult. Sadly, self harm usually results in much greater problems and can quickly lead to suicide.
