    It's distressing that suicide rates among 10-14 year olds are increasing.

    Parents ask Triad school leaders to resign after 11-year-old’s suicide

    “I am asking for your resignation in writing,” Paul Thompson said. “The system is broken. You failed my daughter and she paid the ultimate price.”

    __________

    “When everybody is with their family at Thanksgiving dinner, just remember I have an empty chair,” Paul Thompson said.

    I was bullied as a child and am a parent to children who have been bullied. It really is a whole different world today, with social media and a disturbing trend away from politeness, social kindnesses, and shared community mores that educate children that bullying is always wrong. My solution with my own children has been to attempt to give them the confidence to ignore the bullies, several of whom have been their teachers.

    We should never lose a child to suicide because they were bullied, and it does not sound like the school handled Bethany's posters and anti-bullying initiative well. But I have to ask: where did she get the loaded gun? Our pediatricians in our (predominantly hunting) state ask at every visit 'Do the children always ride in their car seats?' and 'Do you keep your guns in a locked case?' Any child is at risk of depression, especially one who being socially tortured. Bethany may have carried out her intent to commit suicide whether she had access to the firearm or no, but it made what may have been an emotional impulse more deadly than other means she may have otherwise tried. Likewise, I recommend locking up any controlled prescription medications of course.
