Suicide yordanos

Why do middle school kids kill themselves? In the years 2007-2014, more middle school kids died from taking their own lives, than that same age group did from car crashes. There are many reasons they kill themselves such as; mental health, family history, race, gender, sexual orientation and geography, all of which can play a role. In middle school, more kids are getting bullied, and that makes kids feel upset and hopeless. Many kids use social media to bully others, feeling brave hiding behind their keyboards. Parents should check on their kids to see if things are going well for them, limit and monitor their social media access, or don’t allow it, and ask them questions. One of the reasons suicide may occur in middle school, is because it's a time when some of your friends might start hanging out with different friends, causing kids to feel lonely and sad.
