I have a girl in my class (10 yrs old) who has recently started pulling out her eyelashes. She is very high-achieving and says she doesn't feel any stress or pressure. She doesn't always fit in socially, but has developed small friendship groups over the past couple of years. Understandably, she doesn't really want anyone to know about it and she is fortunately very fair so it is less noticeable. One other girl did notice but a story about an eye infection seemed to satisfy her curiosity. I have never had any experience of this before although I have heard of it happening. We are trying keeping something in her pocket for her to fiddle with but it isn't stopping her pulling out her lashes. Has anybody else dealt with this problem successfully? Could it be a phase? Any advice appreciated, thanks.
