Question

Bekommerde ma

My dogter se vriendin het Maandag selfmoord gepleeg. Sy was maar net 13 jaar oud en ek is so teen die grond ek weet nie hoe om dit self te hanteer nie. Sy lyk op die oog af ok, maar klink bietjie depressief. Ek het met my predikant gepraat wat haar wil sien. Hy''t my gesê  sy moet haar vrae waarop sy antwoorde soek op papier sit dan kan hy haar met antwoorde help. Sy wil dit nie doen nie, want sy sê  al vra sy 1000 vrae daar is nie ''n antwoord daarvoor nie. Sy is ook op hierdie moeilike " teenage"  stadium waar ek en sy baie baklei. Ek is ''n moeilike mense myself en kan my humeur nie beteul nie. Hoe hanteer is dit?

Hi,

This is a very tragic situation for you all. For now, it is about supporting her and being there for her when she reaches out. Its also a time to keep a close eye on her.

I would recommend that she see a psychotherapist if you are concerned about her mood or behaviour. Asking the school including the school counsellor to be aware of the situation and monitor her emotionally would also be helpful.

Let her know that if she wants to talk to someone it can be arranged so she knows the door is open to this at any time she needs it.

Best wishes

As dit 'n close vriendin was, sal ek aanbeveel dat julle so gou moontlik neem na ''n sielkundige, veral as sy nie daaroor wil praat nie, tensy sy weet hoe jou kind dit verwerk, party ouers is nie altyd bewus van hulle kinders se gevoelens en probleme, daar was al gevalle in PTA waar 'n paar kinders in dieselfde skool in 'n kort periode selfmoord gepleeg het, dit was totdat die skool begin het met behandeling, kinders weet altyd hoe om dinge te hanteer nie.
