RECENTLY a teenage boy shot himself in Gujranwala for failing in matriculation examinations. What led the boy to such an extreme action? It was obvious from the news report broadcast by a news channel that harsh behaviour on the part of parents led the boy to commit suicide.
True, parents have expectations but having them fulfilled by exerting unnecessary pressure would only result in dire consequences. Parents should not pressure their children into achieving high grades; they should understand their potential and work accordingly.
