Concord Police Talk Girl Off The Roof

Nine-year-old was threatening to leap from the one-story-high roof of Sun Terrace Elementary School Wednesday morning.

The girl was placed for psychiatric evaluation after the incident reported at 9:38 a.m. Wednesday, police said. The roof is one story high at the school on Floyd Lane in North Concord, police said.

Life skills, and how to deal with the pressures of growing up socially should be just as important as academics in school.

parents should be teaching life skills but unfortunately many parents just don't show up to do that for their kids....

Perhaps the school should pay attention or train on bullying? I think this might drive a 9 year old to these measures, but of course I don't know what caused her to do what she did.

More school yard supervision during recess, lunch. Each day a few minutes of the teachers time to explain "bullying" & what a child shld do if bein bullied & the consequences the one bullying will face. Its going on & we all need to pay attention & listen!!!
