The pressures of life today may not be the same as they were several years ago. The burden of school work and family problems may take a toll on a child’s mental health. Recently, China has seen one of the most heartbreaking effects of pressure on children.
A 10-year-old girl died by suicide after drinking poison in her home in Xuzhou city in Jiangsu province, China. She left a three-minute video and a two-page letter for her family.
The young girl drank pesticide, three days before her midterm examination.
She is currently studying as a grade 4 student at the Fengxian Elementary School.
“Mom, Dad, I’m off. I want to tell you I am sorry.”
“I want to go to heaven, and want to bid you all farewell.”
“When my birthday comes up, don’t forget to place a cake in front of my grave. Thanks, Mom and Dad, for taking care of me all these years.”
The girl even added:
“You beat me and you scold me. But I know it is all for my own good. I will take care of you from heaven. I don’t want to let you down. This is something I need to do.”
The girl’s mother, Liu Wei, said that her daughter had series of failing marks this semester. As a result, the girl’s teachers were summoning Wei to the school.
Recently, she was again asked to go to her daughter’s school because of failing marks. The teacher also said that she would not let the girl take the midterm examination since her marks would pull down the class average.
She left a two-page suicide letter for her parents.
Wei added that she never expected her daughter to die from drinking poison because she was lively and happy. However, Wei said that her daughter might have felt tremendous pressure in school. The primary teacher, however, denied that she will not allow the girl to take the midterm examination.
Wang Lei, deputy director of the Bureau of Education, said that there is no case that students are not allowed to take the examinations.
The increasing number of suicide deaths in China and the rest of the world are often linked to school and peer pressure. This incident should be an eye-opener not only for school administrators but also for the students’ teachers and their families.
