Teach self-respect

One of the ways to prevent suicides would be to make the people aware right from high school the importance of positive thinking in life. Girls should be made to realise the importance of self-respect and self-esteem. Marriage is not the `be-all and end-all' of a girl's life. Schools and families may take steps towards teaching the youngsters the value of `high thinking with simple living'.
