Why Teens Try to Commit Suicide For those who believe that bullying is not as severe or drastic as the media reports or that teasing is just a part of growing up, this article is for you. Suicide is the third leading cause of death for young adults and teenagers, and bullying has increased across the U.S. since the tragedy of Columbine High School.

Even with all the technological gadgets and other diversions that fill a teen’s life, they are still extremely vulnerable. In the U.S., over 5,000 students committed suicide just this year.

A Net Neutrality Timeline: How We Got Here Updated:The FCC Tuesday voted 3:2 to approve an order that will enshrine the policies of network neutrality — the idea that ISPs can’t hinder or discriminate against lawful content flowing through their pipes — as regulations enforced by the commission.

This misdiagnosing was especially striking to me with a sixteen-year-old girl named Joy, whose family came to consult me a few months ago. Up until last year, Joy was a straight A student. All of her high school classes were either honors level or Advanced Placement (AP).

Wisconsin Bullying Law: Parents To Be Fined If Their Kids Are Bullies Bullying has become an American epidemic, and now one Wisconsin city has passed a law that holds parents financially liable if their kids are bullies in an effort to curb the problem. Parents in Shawano, Wisconsin, will now be subject to fines if their child (under the age of 18) bullies another child or children. As WQAD 8 reports, under the Wisconsin city’s new bullying law, parents will get a warning from police if it is determined that their child has been bullying another child. From that point, parents will have 90 days to address and curb their child’s bullying behavior. If they can’t get their bullying kid in check, it starts to become a costly problem. If, after 90 days, parents in the Wisconsin city can’t get their bullying child or children under control, under the new law they will face a $366 fine.

(The diagnosis is being considered for the 2012 edition of the Manual.) Past research suggests that 1.4 percent to 17.9 percent of adolescents are addicted to the Internet, with percentages higher in Eastern nations than in Western nations, according to the study published in the Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine.
