The minister in charge of gender and child affairs, Ayanna Webster-Roy, says she is deeply saddened by the recent reports of children committing suicide. 

A statement issued by the Office of the Prime Minister said such troubling events are of great concern to the ministry and stakeholders in child development and certainly to parents and families everywhere.

She said there is need for even closer attention to be paid to our children who may be struggling in silence.

The minister is asking parents, guardians and teachers to create an environment of open dialogue for children; as childhood should not be one of burden but instead childhood should be filled with love, happiness and a sure and certain hope for a bright future for the nation's children.
