Today I have read this article about this student who was at a local Grammar School and he committed suicide.
I have found this article very saddening as a child of his age who has the world at his feet has somehow decided that life is not worth living.
Do you think that we as parents put to much pressure on our children to be successful and do Granmar schools put to much pressure on children to get results or is it a combination of both?
Should Grammar schools spend more time with students discussing life and personal issues??
I know they do in Indie Schools but not sure if they do in Grammar School.
It maybe that this has nothing to do with school and academic pressures but it's a eye opener.
I hope no one is offended by this post and I'll apologise before hand.
RIP to this boy and hope his family have the strength to move forward in life.
