At 11 I tried to kill myself because I was being molested. To me I just knew the abuse would stop. I am praying for this boy. I am praying for an end to whatever pain he is going through that would make him feel suicide is an option. I thank God his attempt didn't work. Surround him in love and prayers.

Back on April 17, 2012, a 14 year old 8th grader from my daughters middle school committed suicide. He was found dead from a bullet to his head. Before he killed himself, he wrote his family a note indicating that his girlfriend had broken up with him and he did not know how to deal with it. I think as parents this is a wake up call. We really need to listen to our kids. Be there for them no matter what. Take the time to understand what there feelings are and that life goes on. There is always a tomorrow. Not always easy, but there are plenty of resources to turn to.

Many times parents don't get a second chance to do the right thing. Being a friend to your children is easier than being a parent to them, but children need parents to guide them in the right direction. Parents don't realize how quickly time passes until they get older. During the blink of an eye it seems like children grow up and are gone. Parents need to take the time to enjoy their kids while they are growing up, they need to take care of their real needs, and they need to show them love.
