So sad...school staff needs to do more than just discuss suicide prevention behind closed doors or react after the fact. It's not as if the school year has just started. The staff has to reach out to students proactively.

Why is it always the school staff that is wrong? When did parents give up their responsibility?

Actually, the question should be was he being bullied for ANY reason - not just "was he gay". Kids are bullied for something so minute as the color of their hair or the fact that they wear glasses. It's been this way forever, probably won't change any time soon.

It's a well documented psychological phenomenon that people who point out, in their opinion, that someone is gay, is very likely hiding their own homosexuality. That would be you.

It's because parents give their kids no direction, this kids parents should have see/read the signs...everyone thinks kids behave erratically because of hormones and adolescence. I personally would notice and question my kid, long before his obvious behavior pattern changed, oh well...i doubt parents will bother even after this.

Let me ask you this, why didn't WE have all these petty little problems growing up?...i'll tell u why, because we had parents that when we got out of line, they could smak us, and we deserved it too. today, you cannot smak yer kids...and ppl who say that doesn't work? are the very ppl that are causing our kids to be nothing but zombies, worthless pill poppin' alcoholic zombies.period

show me ten kids in town that are doing good with their lives.

Wow...really? What kind of question is that? Maybe you should try wording that a little differently, that could offend a lot of people.

First of all if you actually opened your eyes maybe you would notice that plenty of people are doing well in this world. Second, maybe you need some counseling cause if you think that child abuse is the right way of dealing with things, because your to lazy to deal with a child calling out for help, than your wrong!!! This is all coming from a child that was being abused for more than half her life, and from a friend of Connor that commuted suicide. So think twice before you even think about making those false judgements.....!!!!!
