South China Morning Post quotes Diane on the recent tragic cluster of childhood suicides in Hong Kong

The recent cluster of suicide among children in Hong Kong is disturbing and has provoked some much needed soul searching for all adults. It is critically important to speak openly and candidly with children about the pressures they feel to succeed, to be the best.The burden children feel inside the overriding message— that only the best will do, in grades, test scores, sports —in everything, is crippling. The challenge for parents the world over is to want the best for your child, but not for your child to be the best.
