Is it normal to punish a child for self harm?
My youngest daughter was upset that I cleaned her room for her. (I had told her I was doing so) I asked her to sort through the rest of the stuff I had not gotten to. She was visibly distraught and yelled at me for "Violating her personal space" and her "freedom of expression" I tried to explain to her that because she was my child, they were my personal space, and my freedom of expression. She was on the floor, scratching, punching, and biting herself. She was crying and I wanted her to stop making a scene and just be fucking grateful, so I told her she would not be allowed to have Halloween if she did not stop harming herself.
