Children as Young as 5 are Self Harming

Concept of a young injured girl being a victim of child abuse

We have a huge self-esteem crisis facing our young and unless we stop picking on how they express their emotions rather than the feelings that brought them on we are going to see more self-harm and greater incidents of depression, anxiety, obesity and suicide:

Children as young as five are harming themselves, in a worrying epidemic that is sweeping the country, ChildLine has warned.

The charity says that it is no longer just teenagers who are self harming, but they are also receiving calls from five-year-olds.

The charity says that it has also seen a surge in the number of girls aged 10 to 14 self-harming and recorded a 30 per cent rise in boys who are deliberately hurting themselves.

Chris Leaman of charity Young-Minds, told The Daily Mirror that in some parts of the UK the number of young people self-harming had reached ‘almost epidemic’ proportions.

Research has suggested that self-harm is most common among 15 to 19-year-olds, and those suffering from anxiety and depression, according to the NHS.
