Of Parenting

by mott on October 20, 2016

Much has been said of a recent story where a young 11 year old Singaporean boy committed suicide because he failed a number of subjects during the PLSE. The moment I read it, I felt so sad. Just the headlines itself, made me really troubled within. The mother was reported to have said something that made trollers and commentators go bananas on the keyboard. I, for one, sympathise for the mother. She was in total shock. Her words are not a complete reflection of the type of mother she was. She was just merely trying to make sense of the tragedy that was right in front of her eyes. She would never be able to look herself in the mirror, and just wonder…if she really pushed him to the brink of suicide.

I pray for this mother, and the family. Pray that God’s gentle healing will soothe her broken heart over time.
