Nowadays, people who commit suicide are getting younger and younger. I even heared a news about a 10 year old boy took his own life after his mother scolded him. So, what do you think are the factors of suicide and how you can help someone with suicidal impulses?

I would say a lot of it comes from peer pressure. Kids these days are so cruel. They don't care about others feelings. It seems if they hurt someone they feel powerful. Another cause could be some kind of abuse in their lives. Maybe they don't get the love they need at home or are physically abused. We don't really know what makes them snap but the best thing to do is support them. Try to help boost their self esteem. Listening to them can be a big help. Sometimes thats all they need.

Well if we want to help people to stop this from happening, the word of "young" is the first key of the solution. Young people, teenagers, yes they are definitely young, their hearts are still young and pure, therefore they need a right guidance, support and need to be taught about the common truth and not to be lied. They can't handle a pain as much as grown up can, you see you said a 10 year old boy took away his own life after his mother scolded him. Seems like something did really hurt his feeling. Why would the mother scold when she can teach properly instead of blaming and scolding.
