DNA on the increase in suicide cases in children: In Alwar, Rajasthan, a 15-year-old boy committed suicide because his mother could not find time for him. The mother of this child works as a teacher in a public school. He found it very difficult to manage the house along with work. This boy wanted his mother to get him a new school uniform. The day he committed suicide was his mother’s birthday. In the morning he insisted on taking off his mother’s uniform, but his mother left home saying that he had been late for school and would later think of picking up the uniform. The boy was so hurt by his mother’s words that he committed suicide.
The son gave up his life ignoring the mother
The things he wrote on his suicide note are amazing. In it, he wrote for his mother that now you will never be late for school. The best birthday present in the world. Next to that is also written Happy Birthday Mummyji. That is, if his mother could not give him time because of his job, then he took his own life. This is a very dangerous thing. There are many parents in our country who cannot give time to their children because of their work.
In many homes it happens that when children go to school, at the same time it is time for parents to go to work. That is why they are not able to give their children much time.

135 lives of people affected by suicide itself
According to the World Health Organization, every time a person commits suicide, the lives of about 135 associates are affected. These people go into a deep sadness and depression. Termination of any life seriously affects that person’s spouse, children, family, relatives, friends, and co-workers. That is, suicide is not only violence against oneself but also hurts people close to that person.
One more thing, if you’re not happy with your job, you can quit it. If you’re not happy with a relationship, you can leave it too. But with life you can’t do that because you didn’t create life. You have no right to destroy what you do not build.
The best part is that today depression, stress and depression increase in children. In the old days, when parents used to scold children or teachers used to be strict with them at school, children never got into depression. But nowadays depression in children has become very common. Now, if they also take the cell phone to the children of a family, then they get depressed about such a thing.
The problem of increased mental stress in children
According to a 2019 report, there are 50 million children in India who are not mentally healthy. These children have to struggle with depression and anxiety. This stress has also irritated the mood of the children and their nature. In a study conducted by the National Biotechnology Information Center, it was found that one in four children aged 13 to 15 in India has a complaint of depression.
Think about it, there was a time when depression was considered a disease of the elderly. People often said that when you grow up you will know what stress is, how difficult life is. But looking at the current circumstances, it seems that children are now growing up in their childhood. The most important thing is that children with a bad mood or children who are often under stress for some reason, cannot seek the help of a doctor for this.
This problem is even more so in those homes where both parents work. A survey was conducted by an organization called Assocham, in which it was found that families in which both parents go out to work, are not able to give their children almost 30 minutes a day. That is, these parents cannot give almost half an hour to their children in 24 hours. That’s why they never know what’s going on in their children’s minds.
Children can only be given half an hour
In the same survey, 60 percent of women also believed that if they get a part-time job, they will be able to spend more time with their children. While in a full-time job it is difficult for them to do so. According to this report, a woman spends an average of 10 hours in the office. It takes two and a half hours to get to the office. He only sleeps 6 to 7 hours a day and spends three hours on other household chores. That is, he barely gets half an hour for his children.
The problem increases after the start of covid
The Alwar incident shows that in the current era, children have started to feel lonely and find it easier to commit suicide. According to the National Crime Records Bureau, 9,413 children committed suicide in 2018, 9,613 in 2019 and 11,396 in 2020. That is, if you look at these figures, then you will know that suicide incidents between children increase rapidly. Especially after Kovid, this situation has become even more worrying. In 2020, 31 children committed suicide every day and every hour more than one child gave their lives for depression and other reasons. We believe this news is related to every family and every parent in the country.
