Find out some of the teen suicide is rising with an alarming rate.
Parents in the US are a worried lot with many not knowing what to do in case the worst happened in their family.Many teenagers have committed suicide without alerting anyone on their plans to do it or even leaving any message to solve puzzle of why they took their lives.This has been a very scary nightmare, more scary than the late night horror movies.Does this mean that this cannot be controlled ? the answer is NO!.I still believe there is a solution to every problem and this is not an exception either.Sometimes parents are the architects of this predicaments for which they pay dearly.As a parent, what do you think will happen to your children when you choose to walk out of your marriage in which these children were born?This children wake up one day to find no one to call dad or mommy.What follows is that these children will tempted to think that they caused the break up and this makes them suffer guilt which for which some have come up with a phrase” i will never forgive myself for this “The truth is that the children are innocent , the person who caused these problems is the parent who walked out.
The other thing that causes teenage suicide is lack of communication between the teenage and their parents.Some parents are too busy to talk to their children and this is a recipe for a huge downfall of any family.Sometimes a teenager will be going through hell and wondering who to tell or who is ready to listen.The teenager gets stressed and later gets depressed.Depression is the worst state of mind to be in.I have a terminology i use for it ” The pit of despair”.It is in this pit that every negative voice will speak to someone.The voices will try to proof why one should not be alive, they will tell you that life is worthless and give you proves for this.In this pit the teenager will start feeling that even the non-living things hate him/her.If a leaf from a tree and falls on them and not the other person , they will think it has happened because life hates them.In this stage they are easily provoked to a point that even a simple harmless joke will be interpreted to be an insult.Parents should watch out any of these symptoms and act very first.Anyone who offers to listen to a teenager who is at this stage will be taken as confidant to them and they inform such a person of any major step that this teenage may want to take.If you are a parent it’s the high time you created some time in your busy schedule to talk to your children before you wake up one day and find none.Be friendly to your children and they will be open to to you whenever they having any problem.
