 I wanted to apologize if I upset ANYONE by posting this. I just thought as mothers we should all read this, so if heaven forbid, that our child someday says something like this, it won't be overlooked as a child being angry for being sent to their room.

Again I am very sorry if I upset, or brought up bad memories for anyone. I just thought it was something that needed to read by all of us.

     That is so sad. I hope they are wrong but it sounds like they are not. Maybe she was trying to hurt herself but at 7 do they really understand death?

    Devastating and clearly, something that is going to scare a lot of us mothers.

    In a word: NO.

     I think alot of parents don't realize just how much a child really understands, even at the age of 7. Horrible.

    How in the world would a 7 year old know that doing that would result in death?  So, so, so sad and so, so, so preventable!!
