Who dies next Every year thousands of youth die not from cancer or car accidents but by their own hand The American Academy of Pediatrics estimates that 500000 youth try to kill themselves every year and over 5000 succeed Since 1970 teen suicide has increased 300 percent for ages 15 through 19 and 180 percent for ages 10 through 14 In one recent survey of high school students 60 percent said they had thought about killing themselves That is three out of every five students 44 percent of the youth who attempt suicide overdose on some sort of drug Where are these teenagers getting these drugs 38 percent use fire arms Where are they getting these guns The 18 percent left chose various other ways Why has the youth suicide rate taken such a dramatic jump in recent years There are several reasons of what might have caused this suicide increase but almost every reason has to do with the lack of parental interest Cindy Young a local licensed professional counselor states that over half of her youth clients that are suicidal have parents that spend no time with them The average parent does not spent sufficient quality time with their children Now it is more often for both mother and father to work full time from that one factor parents deprive their children of the time they need Another reason parents do not spend as much quality time with their children is because parents have their own interests It may be watching television reading talking on the phone working on the computer new family members such as a new child or spouse Children seem to take the back burner a generous amount of the time Another reason for the suicide increase is because many children do not meet up to their parents expectations so in response parents put their children down tell them they are worthless punish them call them
