Talking to kids about suicide
Thu, 08-14-2014 - 4:19pm

I came across this article that I thought was good today, for anyone looking for ways to talk to their kids about it:

Our family were huge fans of Robin Williams. I am devastated to hear that he died, and even more so that he allegedly took his own life. How do we talk to children and teenagers about someone making that choice?

Across the world, people are utterly heartbroken about the news that Robin Williams has died. I, too, am reeling from hearing that such a bright light was in so much pain that he saw no other way of carrying on but to end his life. I join all those who are grieving for this loving man, and send prayers of comfort to his family...
