  • Parents need to watch signs displayed by kids

     Parents: PAY ATTENTION! 

    A recent article in the New York Times noted recent statistics showing that children aged 10 to 14 (roughly the ages of our middle school students) are as likely to die from suicide as from traffic accidents. 

    There is no acceptable rate of death for children, but the article points out that death among that age group is pretty rare for all causes.  

    Even so, traffic accidents used to account for four times more deaths than suicide back in 1999.  Now, it is almost the same.
