I had to have the suicide conversation with my children as of late. They are 22 and 26. The topic is rampant at this time. Has not helped that Chris Cornell and Chester Bennington have both chosen to end their lives. Both groups that they were in meant quite a lot to my kids. They say their music got them through some tough times.
Our conversation ended with me saying that life is very hard, but that we get up every day and do our best to get through the day. We as a family are in this thing TOGETHER. No matter what. I'll be here to listen, nothing is so impossible that we can't make it through. So sad that these conversations must take place. Parenting doesn't end when they become adults.
