Child Voice Speaker
I am 11 years old and have seen a lot of drama regarding mental issues. I never thought much of it until friends of mine complained about things like this very often. When I was told that I could talk about an issue at this Summit I was sure to bring this problem up.
Why did I choose to talk about this? This problem was talked about very often by kids my age. They said things like “I am going mental “ or “I am going to kill myself “ . As you can see these things are very negative and shouldn’t be ignored. Some of the time these responses were said because of friends and school bullying. Although these things must be stopped and I am going to talk about something easy carers can stop doing to help this problem like parents pushing their kids to learn. As when they can’t earn more than Cs. Also parents spend a lot of time at work and don’t have time to get to know their kids good enough. Kids can feel lonely or sad especially if they have no siblings. This is a reason kids spend a lot of time on devices. these are some of the main reasons I will talk about this
