At age 14 or 15, a perfect storm of surging hormones, immature brains and unfamiliar emotions drive nearly one in 12 teens to deliberately hurt themselves, most often by cutting or burning their own flesh, or by trying to hang, electrocute, drown or suffocate themselves. Children as young as 7 are engaging in self-harming behaviors such as cutting, burning or hitting themselves, a new study published in Pediatrics - Journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics.
