A recent incident in my neibourhood made me wonder where has the childhood innocence been lost… and where the next generation is actually heading to…??

Around a week back a mother scolded her 10 year old son for something which she didn’t approve of him… and guess what that boy did to retort…

He attempted suicide by trying to strangulate himself…. fortunately, one of his family member saw and he was saved…

This whole incident left me thinking and wondering what inspired him to take this step… was he trying to play a prank??

I mean at the age of 10 we didn’t know what suicide is or even if we knew.. just a scolding from parents was not the reason enough to end life for us… and pranks? Our pranks were also funny and harmless and not anything so serius…

I am still confused… are the kids today losing the innocence or they are being forced to lose the innocence due to immense pressure and innumerable expectations from them???
