13-Year-old boy commits suicide because of bullying
Bullying is a disease that affects around 350 million students around the world. What starts with a "little joke", ends up generating countless psychological traumas. In the case of Daniel Fitzpatrick, 13, something much worse happened: after complaints in the board and the school did not do anything, the American ended up taking his own life.
According to Daniel's mother, Maureen Mahoney Fitzpatrick, the boy , who studied at the Holy Angels Catholic Academy, was constantly bothered by colleagues who cursed him and threw things at him.
The father of the boy, also called Daniel, tells that no one should bury his own son and no child should go through what the young man passed by. The boy's father also released a letter written by his son after receiving the school's recommendation that he should repeat the series he was attending, but at another institution. In the text, the child reports how he felt about bullying.
In sections of the letter, Daniel states that teachers did absolutely nothing to prevent the problems he was experiencing and that he often found himself in situations of violence due to bullying.

Making children come into contact with science is a challenge. The project "Xperience - Science and Fun", on display at Shopping Ibirapuera, aims to change this experience in children from the age of 4. By May 31, the kids will be confronted with 20 interactive and explore the most diverse areas of science, such as energy, electric and gravitational force.
A study by the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York (USA) indicates that children who snore, breathe through their mouths or breathe. stop breathing for a few seconds during sleep are more likely to develop behavioral problems. Previous research has already suggested a link between these sleep-disordered breathing and problems, such as hyperactivity, but this is the largest and most comprehensive of the type.
