Summary No five-year-old child would try to kill himself, right? Contrary to popular belief, young children do get seriously depressed, and many try to kill themselves. Each day more than one thousand teenagers try to kill themselves, and every ninety minutes one succeeds. There is also a dramatic upswing in the number of children aged five to fourteen who try to take their own lives. But there is help for parents whose children are depressed and may be suicidal. In Helping Your Child Cope with Depression and Suicidal Thoughts Shamoo and Patros show parents: How to learn to talk, listen, and communicate effectively with a depressed child; What situations can cause a child or adolescent to wish to commit suicide; What signs to watch for; Myths and misinformation about suicide; How to determine the risk of suicide; How to intervene.
