Inquiry Question: Why are suicidal rates higher for teenagers”.
My inquiry question is about suicidal rates in teenagers because of a talk that I had with my family during dinner. We talked about how and why teenagers’ suicidal rate is higher than it was back in the day. My parents think that the cause for this is because of social media but personally I want to know the exact reason. From somebody who watched a lot of TV shows and videos on suicide, I personally think that social media is not the only cause. I think that suicide rates are increasing for teenagers because of stress, school, and bullying. I found that every country does have different reasons why teenagers suicide. In some cases, in China or Hong Kong teenagers tend to pass away due to stress because of the CSAT. I find it intriguing because usually in North America teenagers tend to pass away due to being bullied or social media because of the hate comments. So, why is it that the suicidal rates are increasing for teenagers and adults are not having the same case since they do tend to have more responsibilities and pressure? This is why my inquiry is about this. I hope to get into how each country has different reasons for suicidal rates and why it is increasing, how do some students prevent it from happening and why some can’t, and possibly about why it is increasing now instead of decreasing. The last part is a topic that I want to do because my parents also wonder why it is increasing nowadays since there is technology and life is better now than it was before so, I want to know why my parents think that way.
