Parenting Perspective: The reality of teen suicide

The story of the suicides of two teenage girls from Interboro High School two weeks ago was a tragic one. As the parent of two teenagers myself, it really made me stop and think. I feel that my 17-year-old and 13-year-old and I communicate fairly well. But part of being a teenager is that they distance themselves from their parents, and tend to communicate more with their friends. And it's scary.
