Motherhood Prevents Suicide

It makes sense. Motherhood prevents suicide. You are more likely to be focused on someone other than yourself when you have little ones who count on you. Even if you were suicidal, you wouldn't do it because you know how bad it would the kids. I makes perfect sense.

It's funny that the more kids you have, the less likely you are to commit suicide though. LOL!

FROM NBC: Women are much less likely to commit suicide when they become mothers -- and, it seems, the more children the better. Researchers followed more than a million women for over two decades. Compared to women with just one child, those with two were 40-percent less likely to die in a suicide.

There was a 60-percent decrease among women with three or more children.
The study was done in Taiwan -- where suicide rates have been increasing during the past decade. Researchers say motherhood may increase a woman's feeling of self-worth and enhance social networks.
