Our daughter currently 11 yro has been pulling since she was approx 7. It began at the start of 3rd grade ironically the first year of our states SOL testing. At first my husband and I tried counseling and even several
counselors looking for one that could guide us. After a while we gave up and just determined it would be her life. As middle school approached we became more worried about teasing and things so we made the decision to seek help again. We have been seeing a psychiatrist and she have been taking medication to attempt to help. We had mild succes prior to the start of the school year but that quickly spiraled out of control.
As a parent to a brilliant young girl who had gorgeous eyelashes to match everything with her gorgeous self both inside and out I'm crushed. She lies about whether she's pulled or not. She's resorted to "rubbing" which then irritates the skin or mats her eyebrows together. I feel like a failure as a parent it's a stressor to our family and I feel lost and alone. Is there anyone with any suggestions????
