The report only said where he jumped from..no other details.... I cannot stress enough that some experts seriously need to address this with the kids today....not directly telling them not to but use an effective way to show that this cannot solve any problems. *sigh*

Are kids living a sheltered life or being unsheltered these days?

Sheltered- not given enough ownership of responsibilites, building resilience in the process?

Unsheltered- too much exposure to social media ill influences without close parental guidance?

Or parents see the child as being a little adult, too trusting of the child, forget the child can have moments of misjudgment?
