Q: Suicide season is here again

The Kids get there exam results today and the pressure to do well is building to a high level and some won't be able to cope.
As responsible adults we need to do what we can to help them understand a bad score is not the end of their life.
I've lost enough adult friends in resent years to PTSD and i have had rough of funerals .
Don't let it happen to these kids.
We need to talk about this as distasteful as it is and do something positive.

I chastised a young female student (teen) once about her lack of effort regarding studies,,,   she started crying !!   Blew my mind!  I was like,,,   woooh!  One of my first thoughts is what if she does what we always hear about china students doing!!  Really scared me!  That was a wake-up call for me,,,,  just because we grew up where people really let you have it and we took it in stride,,,,,  well,   those days are over.  So, I am like 'gentle guy' now when it comes to anything with students,,,  I only point out the good in their work, or at least point out deficiencies in a nice way, and try to be understanding and all that,,, or if I feel really ticked-off, I have learned to just walk away and ignore.   It just upsets me if I get angry with them and potentially drives them to some wacko behavior.  So, anyway, I think we all see that now in China,,, heck, might be the whole world for all I know...

yes, if the gaokao scores are good, all the teachers will be in a good mood for bonuses coming, if not, students getting tough final exams before going home and piles of summer homework. I had a suicide at my high school 2 years ago. Parents bought him a house in grade 10, afraid they could not afford one later, pressure of expectations and his older sister helping to pay the mortgage was too much.

The rates are high but we don't know how high. The media here can't publish the numbers. Parents won't be saying anything because there is no help anyway. The economy and the tech sectors have come a long way, very fast, in this country. To bad the education system isn't given the same priority. But the social area remains far behind that of the rest of the world. This includes the education system.

Heard from a couple of Chinese teachers at my school that there was a suicide last year. Not one word was said. Instead, the director took away the afternoon free time and started policies that made school hours 7am-9;30pm six days a week. The rational behind the decision was the students would be too busy to do anything else (like kill themselves). So far, these new posicies have caused almost all the teachers in the international department to leave. I don't see a few Chinese teachers that I talked with. People are leaving the school. And fuctard doesn't realize he's the problem.

 

For all their vaunted "5,000 year old culture" they really don't get it.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
