Thank you so much for your comment. It is very true that parents need to accept their children and celebrate who they are, rather then forcing their children to try and be what they want them to be!
It is important to note that although parental difficulties can often contribute to depression and suicide, it is usually a combination of many factors that cause a person to take their own live's.
In my experence there are parents that are really supportive and do the best that they can for their children, whose children still become so depressed that they commit suicide, due to other factors.
I hope you find my answer helpful
