My brothers friend - January 20th 2012, 05:42 PM

I know this is more than likely in the wrong spot. I wasn't sure if it'd fit under family or self harm. My brother has a female friend who was into self harm. My brother was going to have a nice talk with the female friend who was having the problems. Well needless to say her mom found out and now is sending my brother messages about not having any conact with this girl.

The message said:
hey this is ****** i am ****** mother u leave my daughter alone this is your first and last warning this cutting nonsense is going to cease i want no further contact between the two of you am i understood


My brother is all up in arms unsure what to do. He wrote back to the girls mom and said he was only there to help the girl. He wants to help this girl, mainly because he actually cares about her. So what would be the best thing to do in this particular situation. Yes I know my brother's still in Middle School and should listen to the girls mom.

Hi There,

I dont know the details but if this girl is only comfortable talking with him then I think that he should talk to her off the phone maybe on AIM and delete the logs after or meet up with her if possible. The most important thing is to make sure she has someone to talk to and to make sure sure she is safe.

Good Luck.

He tried that last weekend meeting up with her at the library and her mom freaked out.

Maybe your brother is not the right person to explain it to her mom? A counselor or any other professional might be better trained to explain to her about this.
At your brother's level he can chat with her mom and explain to her that it is not a freakish thing by maybe giving her links to a site that tells about myths of Self Harm and what to do in case someone you know does it. There are many articles available on this on the internet. He can try showing them to her and explain that what she needs right now is help.
I hope I helped
