"My husband and I just found out that our teenage daughter has been burning herself on her lower abdomen, just below the waistband of her pants. We're scared, and don't know what to do. We've tried to talk to her about it but she just gets very angry, and we're afraid that if we try too hard she'll shut down on us completely. What can we do to help our daughter?"
