6 yr old girl kills herself after being sent to her room. OMG!!!! *update*

http://www.aolnews.com/nation/article/6-year-old-oregon-girl-commits-suicide-medical-examiner-says/19428962

 I wanted to apologize if I upset ANYONE by posting this. I just thought as mothers we should all read this, so if heaven forbid, that our child someday says something like this, it won't be overlooked as a child being angry for being sent to their room.

Again I am very sorry if I upset, or brought up bad memories for anyone. I just thought it was something that needed to read by all of us.

OMG. I feel like crying. That is so horribly sad. That poor girl, and her poor parents. It says that she told them she was going to kill herself... If one of my kids said that to me, we would be sitting down and having a talk about it...

WOW. I am just stunned. My dd will be 6 in July. I guess this is a wake up call for parents, no matter what age your child is if they threaten to kill themselves keep an eye on them and get them help. I never would have thought a child that young would do this.

Quoting Meadowchik:

Kids are smart enough to hurt themselves.  This is a VERY scary story because the girl knew how to do it because of the warnings parents gave about not putting things around their necks because they could die.  How many of us warn our kids like that, with complete honest, caring intentions?  I guess the thing is, if a child threatens they will kill themselves, sadly such a statement cannot be dismissed no matter the age.

That is so sad. There is no way that is suicide, a 6 year old doesn't understand death like that.
