Deanna’s Talk: How Parenting is the First Line of Defense in Youth Suicide

Parenting – the first line of defense in youth suicide. Adolescent suicide has increased 48% in the last decade. Our kids are turning to their peers with their challenges in life and thoughts of suicide and depression.

We need to re-establish the relationship with our children so they feel, seen, heard and loved. We need them communicating with us and that we can help them navigate through their challenges so they don’t need to turn to suicide to end the pain they are in.
