    people do it for that many different reasons I couldnt begin to tell you. Youd have to ask him yourself and take it from there. Its the only way unless you know that somethings getting to him enough to make him want to do that. People i know cut other peoples names into their arms so it will scar. People i know cut their arms because their mom is in prison and theyre worried.

    Im not saying that its either of these, im saying that your really lookin for a fart in a jacuzzi tryin to work it out without asking first. Hope all ends well.

    Being sorta teenage aged, emotions are incredibly strong and overpowering. If upset about something, a teenager can cry hysterically for hours. Cutting provides an adrenaline rush, that can stop the crying.

    Almost all the reasons I can think of stem from... well, depression of sorts. Another reason is to see blood. They like to punish themselves, and enjoy watching themselves bleed.

    They're only going to stop if they want to, it's got to come from them, rather than someone else.

    Another thing could be for attention seeking. (I'm not suggesting that your nephew is attention seeking, I'm just telling it like it is.) Some people cut almost entirely to get attention from other people. Or to cry out to others that they are depressed and feel they need help.

    More extremely, cutting scars could be caused by attempts at suicide.

    Hope that helped. PM or email me if ya like - deliriouscow@hotmail.com

    rolly - there's a thread called 'self harm' on the health boards explaining why different people do it.

    might make useful reading.

    In the main part of TheSite theres a whole section on Mental Health, and self-harm and the reasons for doing it. Have a gander, its in the "specials" section.
