    Second-Grader Commits Suicide in New Jersey

    My heart is breaking for this little guy. I have a 3rd grader, and if he took his life, I think I would have to take my own...

    Police said several family members were at home when he died.
    They found his body after he didn't answer a call to dinner.
    Grief counselors were at the boy's school.

    Oh my gosh, how awful! I have a son in 2nd grade and I can't imagine what could be so awful that would make them resort to such a tragic act??

    That poor little boy

    I can't imagine someone so young having such deep sadness. I wonder if he had psychological issues or a bad home?? Either way, what a horrible story.

    Sometimes the first step towards forgiveness is understanding that the other person is a complete idiot.

    I can't imagine a 7 year old committing suicide.. I wonder if he was playing around and "accidently" hung himself???
    It's very sad either way.

    The boy, who was reported to be a very good student, might have been upset about receiving a poor mark at school earlier in the day, sources said.

    If I were his teacher I'd be passing everyone the rest of my career! It's not her fault - but there's probably no telling her that for awhile.

    maybe he couldn't take getting a bad mark. you build those kids up so much... just giving them one bad mark can be that devestating? OMG!

    In fairness to parents, I think it can be difficult to encourage a child to succeed without giving him or her the idea that failure is the end of the world. Particularly with some kids.
