Seven Days of Refection for
National Suicide Prevention Awareness Week
Thoughts on Losing a Child to Suicide
Day SEVEN: BE KIND. In this day of social media, people, including adults, are forgetting how to be kind. People will type insults – horrible words – that they would never say to a person’s face. Instruct your child to NEVER tell a peer to “go kill yourself”. This is happening far too often, every day, in all of our schools, including elementary schools.
Life is precious. We need to teach our children to be kind. To be understanding. To be compassionate. To be empathetic. To accept everyone, including those who struggle with a mental health disorder. We adults, set the examples.
