Why can't we prevent more teenage suicides?
People need to open their minds and hearts to suicidal teens. The subject is taboo and because of that, we turn a blind eye to it. We pretend it's not there. And that denial is part of the reason why there are so many suicides. If we could just open up to the subject, educate ourselves and understand what these teens are going through, maybe, just maybe, we could help them. Maybe we could prevent hundreds of unnecessary deaths. Of people dying much too young.
1. The odds of suicide by a teen are higher if they come from fatherless homes, and illegitimacy rates are going up. We don't want to talk about the negative impact of the breakdown of the family on children and focus on liberation of women or how bad men are instead.
2. By letting kids focus on social media that falsely portrays how much happier everyone else is and chasing attention and likes versus meaningful friendships, teens don't learn how to create the deep connections that give them stability. When they then get publicly shamed or hate mobbed, it feels like the world hates them, and it is devastating. Some kill themselves.
3. The current movement to endorse euthanasia certainly lowers the social stigma to suicide and could contribute, too
It doesn't help the suicides by letting in billions of dollars of illegal drugs across the southern US border. That could be a start. Getting the economy going and seeing prosperity in front of the US could give meaning and a goal to those teenagers that just sit idle because they are not working for a goal or to earn a living. The more teenagers that are working the less idle time they have to contemplate their navel. They will have purpose, a reason to live, and they will have purpose, and the means to enjoy life. They should avoid watching the media and listening to the doom and gloom which passes for News today. The PC era of the liberals didn't help them become strong, it just made everyone equally weak. Just a few thoughts.

I saw a big improvement in the payout I made today, because of the hubs that were moved to niche sites. But when I check the stats of those hubs, what I see is different. They get a big spike in views the first day or two after they are moved, then the stats sort of flatline. Is this happening to...

Just wondering. So much ill will abounds in the forum, largely related to a couple of the sub forums. That aside, what would improve your hubpages experience? And no one can say 'shut down the forum' because we'd lose a principle platform for helping each other in many ways - not least the...

Where Does Chocolate Obsession Come From?I have been obsessed with chocolate since I was a child. Why do some people like chocolate so much, while others don't like it. Is it genetic?
