Our parents only want what’s best for us and usually, we will try to do our best in order not to disappoint them. This little 12-year-old girl in Singapore put too much pressure on herself to get the best results in school and that ultimately caused her to commit suicide. At such a young age!
According to Chinapress, the tragic incident happened on August 3, at one of the flats in Sembawang. The deceased, Lisa was studying in Secondary One and was a Singapore citizen of Filipino descent as well as her parents. Her parents were understandably devastated by her suicide and still could not fathom the reason for her death. She was found dead in her school uniform.
Lisa’s mother said that her daughter had always been an overachiever from young and had been unhappy ever since she entered secondary school as she couldn’t make any new friends.
The grieving mother said, “I had consoled her many times and told her that it just took a little time to get used to her new surroundings. I advised her to adapt to the situation and sooner or later everything will be fine.
“She told me a few days ago that she had received the results of her mathematics test and she had barely passed the examination so she was upset. But I never thought that she would commit suicide.”
Apparently her father was home at the time of the incident, around 6.00pm and one of their tenants recalled the police knocking on doors to determine whose child had tragically died.
She said, “When her father discovered that it was actually his only daughter that had died, he broke down and cried. They had moved in when the girl was just four or five years old and they were a close-knit family. The girl had always been quiet and well-behaved so her suicide was a huge shock.”
Lisa’s principal also expressed her condolences to the family and said that she was a good student. She was a member of the track team and was always polite to everyone she met.
The police have confirmed that they are investigating the cause of death.
Our deepest condolences and prayers to the family at this sad time.
