Do Not Push Your Children To Suicides!
I was reading the article below *** and as a parent of also three daughters – two being twins – my heart cried out for the poor parents now terrible anguish and suffering after this has happened to them – and their lives will never be the same again – especially if the girl was the only child!
In an Islamic Hadith (Story) I read about our Great Prophet (PBUH) scolding a father of a child who was ridiculing openly his child who had urinated on the Prophet’s dress. The Great Prophet told him off saying that there was nothing big about it all as the offender was just a child – and what kind of a future the child would have if he was openly continuously being ridiculed like this in front of everyone?
This is the point that I want to make here!
Do Not Make Them Cry – To feel worthless!
In all my over 13 years duration but now expired columns in Between Us Only! in The Oman Daily Observer – and those who are my Readers and Fans will authencicate – I have continuously strived to write about Parenting, Family importance and values! You can even find so many articles in this same very website about this!
A long time ago a very close friend and confidante had told me how he had at one time planned to commit suicide by similarly jumping from a high towers in UAE after his business went bust – and he was facing many problems – mainly legal and court based in Oman. It seems to him that people are less tolerant and patient for trying to go into business and being self employed – and all the SMEs support rhetoric still going on now 30 years later to no avail or takers!

In that night he had a dream of his late father coming to him and telling him ‘that things will be okay – and next day he received a good job offer that made him to be able to sort out his problems. The only thing that had saved him is his sister noting something was amiss – and the man had similarly locked himself in with his ‘suicide note’ on the dressing table!
Another friend of mine had caught his teenager son about to jump from top of his villa after he was continuously and repeatedly being scolded for ‘failing grades’! The boy had even tied a brick around him – and in order to make the fall faster and more grave! He caught the boy just in time after reading his suicide note in the boy’s room. The part that still eats him saying ‘Please forgive me for disappointing you my parents’! The boy today is an executive in a large national firm – just imagine!
Lady Diana Spencer had also said – Family is very important. See also My Own FM Radio Interview here! – http://myownmajid.com/2014/02/08/my-own-fm-radio-interview/ @@
People should learn from others (mistakes) and I urge you once again to pay more attention and care for the children and the family – like I said in my Oman FM Radio interview – what is the point of having more money when the family is disintegrating in front of your very eyes?
Think about it! Take Care!

14 year old Indian Schoolgirl jumps to death in Dubai
*** A 14-year-old Indian schoolgirl jumped to her death from the 17th floor of a Dubai tower after her father scolded her for cheating in an exam, local media reported Monday.
A cleaner alerted police after he found the girl’s body lying on the ground in the Jumeirah Lake Towers neighborhood, Khaleej Times reported.
Police investigators found that a teacher had caught the girl cheating in an exam and warned her that she would be expelled if it happened again.
At home, her father scolded her when he found about the cheating incident, the paper said.
“Her parents told us that when she returned home, she was distraught and very upset. Her father, who came to know about the cheating, also chided her. She went to her room and locked the door,” the daily cited a police officer as saying.
The parents only found out about their daughter’s suicide when police informed them.
