Boy, 11, dies after TV spat with parents
Susan Mohammed

AN 11-year-old boy is suspected to have died by suicide at his home in Couva on Monday night.

The child was taken to the hospital by his father, but he doctors were unable to revive him.

The boy was a fourth standard primary school pupil.

Police were told by the child’s parents that he was watching television on Monday night when they told him to go to bed because he had to attend school the next day.

The parents said that he became angry and went into his bedroom.

A short while later his father checked the bedroom, and found his son with a cord around the neck.

The father took his son to the Couva District Health Facility where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

Cpl Baboolal of the Couva CID and other police officers responded and interviewed the distraught parents.

Detectives of Homicide Region III and Child Protection Unit were also expected to interview the parents and relatives.

An autopsy was expected to be performed on Tuesday.

some kids are highly emotional and prone to rash things like this, and you have to keep close tabs on them
Not everyone can recognise the behavioural patterns :(
(assuming not foul play)

A lot missing from this story.

Funny how it drawing close to SEA time, and an 11 year old commits suicide.

Very interesting and completely unrelated, obviously.

^^

Deep " issues " with family always end with extreme consequences ..

Parents have to be more tolerant .. and must seek professional advice ..

But if parents do not care or not financially able .. the State should intervene ..

But under PNM the death rate will get higher due to no care attitude for the future generation ..

Very SAD !!!

parents probably feeling the stress of SEA, so want the get the child to study more. from the child perspective, is more pain and suffering followed by more pain and suffering if/when he fails SEA.

its always important children know there is a "plan b" if things don't go according to plan. dropping out of school is not so bad. plenty people did not go to school and drive Prado in this country.

Nah that had something to do with school, an 11 year old doesn't just kill himself just like that.

Honestly there is a thin line between sanity and insanity, not everybody can deal with stress in the same way, the mind is more fragile than we all think.

My heartfelt condolences to the parents.
I cannot begin to imagine the pain.

My elder brother died in the crib-47 years ago-my mom still cries-she told me the story for the first time late last year.

They will never recover.

May not be the case Spann. Some of those kids in extra lessons 5-days a week from Standard 4. Is real pressure knowing that you have to score 98% to get into your first choice of secondary school. Thank goodness my kids didn’t have to deal with that stress.

SEA is Std 4.
Std 5 is just to do past papers and revise. The exam is at the end of March - they don't get the whole of Std 5.
Lessons starts from 3rd term in Std 3.

@ Duane .I thought was the sea exams he was talking about and I know that is 11 plus so I know is not exam time. Parents have to be real harsh to push a child like that , if that is really the case, but some children these days entitled and spoilt and will retaliate (sometimes stupidly) when they don’t get their own way. The article says they wanted him to turn off the TV and go to bed , so I doubt it was study time. All in all he was not taught how to deal with problems in the correct way.

His brother was murdered 4 years ago. The child has been traumatized for a long time, and i dunno if he ever got proper counselling. Nobody to point the finger at really, life is what it is sometimes. You must play the cards you are dealt.

yeah that could shake a child up REAL bad

And if left unchecked it could sow some bad seeds in their mind.

Kids are so impressionable and it's important that we sow good strong seeds in their mind for the betterment of society

Yeah , if he saw how they grieved when the brother died, he would expect them to be sorry if he died too.
