You are nuts. Suicide can be prevented and should be. Parents and friends need to recognize depression and not ignore or make fun and get counseling.
It's not practical to think EVERY SINGLE suicide can be prevented. They can't be/ Same with rape, murder, domestic abuse, etc. It will NEVER EVER end.
Bullying still happens because parents don't teach their kids violence is wrong.
Not true. Unless they're just straight psychopaths most bullies can identify violence with being wrong. It's just that they don't care or don't think what THEY are doing is excessive enough to be wrong. Either way, you can't prevent a bully. You have to focus on the targets of said bullies because of those kids are equipped with the right upbringing and psyche to defeat baseless and undeserved mental abuse then they should be fine. We need more kids who'll tell a bully to suck their dick when confronted rather than ones who'll take their words seriously.
When I have kids I will teach them as soon as they are able to talk to be respectful to everyone and to report everything bad they see to me. I will also teach them self defense in case they are physically attacked. But if someone bullies them or calls them names to walk away and call the bully loser or ignore the bully. If the bully puts his hands on you break his arm.
More or less...yeah. I remember walking to my grandma's house from school during my early elementary school days and there was a kid named Brian who gave me shit. This was like 1st/2nd grade. I wasn't fat, didn't wear glasses, dressed a weird way, acted strangely, etc. I was just a normal kid, but he still fucked with me. Stole my milk, knocked my lunch on the floor; that kind of shit. Anyway, walking to my grandma's house that day he ran by me on the sidewalk, most kids took this route so it was common, and just shoved me into the fence. I was pissed, got up with tears in my eyes sprinting as hard as I could to catch him and kick his ass, but I never did. My brother found out and it turns out he knew Brian's older brother. My brother told his brother and his brother wooped his ass. From then on, no problems.
Moral of the story is, have connections.
No but seriously, be resilient and be vocal. Let as many people know about your situation as possible. The more people who know the more witnesses you'll have to attest to your claims and the better chance the bully will piss off. They don't like talkers. They'd rather be able to keep things quiet so speak up and most importantly NEVER give up because things get better. They always do.
