Killing Them Young?

Last week,  a colleague’s cousin committed suicide. He was in Class X. There was immense pressure from school to take extra coaching classes which he was not keen on.

A few months ago, a teenage girl jumped onto the railway track and killed herself. Earlier in the day, police had ‘caught’ her along with her male friend in a public park and threatened to inform the parents. Instead of going home and talking to her parents about the incident, she decided to take her life instead.

Every few days, we get to hear about the tragic news of teens killing themselves.

Are parents, responsible for their child’s untimely death?
