Some people are really depressed and need professional help but social media encourages the crave for fame and attention they seek from their sickness to plan and kill their family in cold blood. I hope they take him out of his misery. 

Or he can come on GNI and spend the day and solve all his problems and get his anger out. This is an amazing place.  Lives have been saved.

No matter what. Never put your kids down and never allow anyone else to do so. Always find the right words to convey your best thoughts. I remember when my kids were playing basketball, a hit was always a good shot and a miss was always a nice try. Even now I got my son a car similar to what his sister has so he feels just as equal even though his grades are much more superior to hers. I am hoping that if I do nothing else right, I want to ensure that I make only good choices when it comes to the kids. And they know that there is no pressure on their grades except that they are As. πŸ˜€

When my son was in Univ., I jokingly told him you just go, excel, bring home As, and I'll do all the admin work -- pay the tuition, etc. So said, so done. I've never denigrated him; always portraying him as my pride and joy. I have a huge photo of him in my home. All these things do wonders for children's self esteem. Everyone wants to know how I raised such a fine boy -- it's just innate, the way we were brought up. All thanks to my dear Mom resting in heaven; she never went past primary school but could carry on a conversion with the brightest and best; solved many village disputes; arranged many marriages; helped many young people get visas to North America; etc. She's my role model and what she passed on to me is what I passed on to my son.

I believe in tough love. If your child is a skulker you tell him to his/her face he/she is and to buckle up. You do not want to raise a parasite or a predator.

would you have a big picture of him if he did not do so well?

This kid was not doing well...so he felt a sense of shame. It's all well and good if your kids do well...what happens if he/she is not doing well?

I don’t disagree. Unfortunately I wasn’t placed in the position to mete out tough love. You are right that sugar coating things is dangerous. I may suggest some early sugar coating while still assessing if the issue is isolated. If it is more prolonged or serious, then tough love may be the only alternative. Don’t get me wrong. My kids are far from perfect but thankfully far from problematic also.

On here, no one seems to comprehend the expectations placed on the young man. That is some pressure, not even to talk it out with his parents. Expectations of him must have been immense. Sad, he had to kill ppl hoping his problems would go away. A year ago an Indian fella, a doctor killed his wife. He was a renowned neurosurgeon, highly educated and knows of making the right choices, yet he lost it. Life is fragile, it is good to have an excellent state of mind. That beats any education-George Ramoo comes to mind, him telling me that education doan mek a person smart. That is after Booker Trade Centre and working at Bllairmont. George had over 30 years experience on the job and I just out of school was trying to school him.

That was Dr Samji who killed his wife after she asked for a divorce  and she was already having an affair with another doctor.

Point I am making is that some kids may not do so well in a college setting, yet could be very successful in other aspects of life. 

Bush Jr. was a C student...yet became President, imagine if he had Indian or CHinese parents, he might have been suicidal 

Hey, Dubya capitalized on his Dad's success. Then PACs got him in the Presidential runner-up. Then charm and charisma helped him win the much-coveted President title.

He is a narcissistic jackass who would kill his parents and siblings rather than have them see him for what he is, a naked fraud. Such selfishness to value himself better than four lives can be rationalized on extraneous circumstances.

Were he concerned about saving face he could have just jumped off some high point greater than five stories and at least have a worthy funeral where real people could mourn him with real tears. Now he rots in jail only to die ab unmourned and unremembered scumbag.
