Suicidal thoughts, also known as suicidal ideation are thoughts about how to kill oneself, which can range from a detailed plan to a fleeting consideration and does not include the final act of killing oneself. The majority of people who experience suicidal ideation do not carry it through. Some may, however, make suicide attempts. Some suicidal ideations can be deliberately planned to fail or be discovered, while others might be carefully planned to succeed.
According to a Finnish study, over one fifth of people who actually died by suicide had discussed their aim with a doctor or other health care professional during their last session.
USA - according to the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), there are about 30,000 completed suicides in America each year, an annual incidence of 0.01%. 80% of suicides are among males. Suicide is the third leading cause of death among 15 to 24 year olds. Twenty per cent of all suicides are among this age group.

Your Child Wants to Join Army: What Do You Say?
By Mike McPhate
It can be a heart-sinking moment. Your child announces a desire to join the military at a time when the U.S. is waging two wars.
You honor the sacrifice of America's soldiers. But, as a parent, you’re selfish: Could you cope with a daily fear of the doorbell?
In his column today, the Post’s Courtland Milloy wrestles over how he might counsel his teenage son on his desire to become a soldier. He notes the hobbled economy’s role in his feelings -- the Army offers as much as $72,900 for college, plus big help in repaying loans.
What would you say to your child? And, how would the financial incentive factor into your thinking?

This is an excerpt from a letter at Prisons' Wives Girlfriends and Partners
Dear Incarcerated (in relationships),
I spend a lot of time counseling women who have committed their lives to standing by you. These women are the very embodiment of unconditional love. I often see many women hurt, mistreated and devastated by partners whose idea of love differs from theirs. You don’t have a choice to do this time, but we do.
Here are a few things you should know:
You should know that we really love you. We love you with two years. We love you with life sentences. Some of us even love you with death. You should know that if a woman is willing to love you at all during a prison sentence, she is someone worth respecting and hanging on to.
You should know it’s not game to ‘play the field’ behind bars. In fact, it’s lame and tacky. Take a look around. You ain’t ballin’. If you are using someone for comfort and commissary under the guise of love and romance, you should know it’s not kind. It takes more strength of character to tell the truth about your intentions. You may be surprised to learn that some are still willing to support you.
You should know life goes on. To demand that she not go out and enjoy the world she is a part of is selfish. There are two lives dealing with this situation. Don’t make her a pseudo prisoner by sentencing her to house arrest. You should know it doesn’t have to be hard time for both for you.

Ending a marriage can not only take a toll on you emotionally, but also physically. Divorce rates are increasing across the world and the reasons range from alcoholism, physical abuse, infidelity, lack of communication, etc. In this day and age of drive-in marriages, quick divorces are no longer shocking. Several marriages end up in divorces. But there are marriages that do face ups and downs and finally make it to the other side. One has to understand, that a marriage is not a packet of instant noodles. You cannot expect it to magically “work”. You have to work on a marriage. So if things go awry in your marriage and you’re considering a divorce, ask yourself why. Go back to the time the problems started and try to understand if there is a pattern. Ask yourself how a divorce can help your current situation. There are several reasons to stay in a marriage and make it work.

This is an excerpt from http://www.advocatesforyouth.org/parents/175?task=view
When talking about sexuality and young people in our culture, we are much more comfortable discussing disasters (teen pregnancy, for example), disease (HIV and other STIs), and dysfunction (coercive sex, etc.). It's much easier for us to talk about what we DON'T want for our kids' sex lives than about what we DO want. In my work with parents, we ultimately get to the hope that kids:
Will appreciate their own bodies
Will express love and intimacy in appropriate ways
Will enjoy sexual feelings without necessarily acting on them
Will practice health prevention, such as regular checkups and breast or testicular self-exams
When they are mature enough to act on their feelings, will talk with a partner about sexual activity before it occurs, including sexual limits (theirs and their partner's), contraceptive and condom use, and the meaning of the relationship and of relationships, in general.
These things are included in the longer list of behaviors of sexually healthy people, compiled by professionals who work in sexuality and human development. The reality is that, as parents, we want our kids to have good sex lives when they grow up—and, sometimes, better sex lives than we have had. The dilemma is finding strategies to support healthy sexual development when there is so little helpful, public discussion about the positive aspects of sexual life.

First he bailed out Sheryl Underwood after her ridiculous comments about black peoples hair, and now he's crusading for Paula Dean. Is Steve Harvey biting off more then he can chew? Do you think Paula Dean is a role model? Should she be mentoring black boys? Join Zaiyah and Uptown as they discuss this and other important topics on this weeks episode of Zaiyah's House.

When you’re extremely happy and in love, it’s rather tempting to tell the entire world (including all of your Facebook friends) about how wonderful your partner is. But a recent study published in the Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin found that social media users who constantly feel the need to make Facebook friends aware of their romantic dealings felt less secure in their relationships. The study examined the psychological factors that drive “relationship visibility” on Facebook.

We always hear people whining about their babies daddies leaving or never knowing their father. Is it always the mans fault? Or should you have known he was a bad prospect? With all the single Mothers, Grand's and Great Grand's you'd think the younger generation would start heeding the their elders words of advice when it comes to the art of getting hitched.

We've all heard stories and told tales about our sexual prowess either now or in the past. Kids these days can't believe Moms was a freak back in the day. We all know Pops was putting in work because that's how he got Moms.

Lucky1227 writes, OK so someone I was talking to was like "oh you should save your virginity for someone you care about guys will respect you more"... I mean why would anyone respect that, just wondering. And like who actually values their virginity? Like to me its not at all a good thing, its a horrible embarrassing sick thing... I WISH I would have had sex at like 15 or 16 my life would be better. So like I don't understand the value in it?
Is viginity still seen as a virtue? These days if you tell someone your a virgin they look at you like your crazy. Most guys aren't looking for Mrs. right, they're looking for Mrs. right now.
