We want to take a moment to address the topic of self-harm and suicide awareness. Many of you may wonder if this subject is even applicable for elementary aged children. Unfortunately, counselors are seeing these concerning ideations in younger children.
Through older siblings, friends, or online access, young students may be inadvertently exposed to sensitive content related to self-harm and suicide, which can include Netflix shows, YouTube videos, and online games. As students at a young age can be vulnerable to this suggestive material, please monitor your child’s internet and device use, as well as talk to them regularly about their feelings and interactions with their peers.
Fortunately, as educators and parents, we can teach skills to elementary school children that can better protect them from the risk of suicide and other self-destructive behaviors as they become adolescents. Problem-solving skills, the capacity to control feelings, and the ability to turn to trusted adults for help are critical skills that can never be taught too early.
Please contact your School Counselor if you have any concerns, and remind your child to talk to their teacher or counselor if they feel overwhelming sadness or fear.
Together, as a community, we can support our children and work to keep our students safe.
