As if parents don’t have a enough to worry about when it comes to the safety of their kids — the popularity of cell phones, social networking sites and blogs has caused even more concern.

Work helps them mourn and they are stronger and able to deal because they don’t fear as much that the painful feeling will completely overwhelm them.”
A number of factors contribute to today’s problems faced by suicidal children of celebrities.
The recent and tragic suicides of Marie Osmond‘s son Michael Blosil and former Growing Pains actor Andrew Koenig have us here at HollywoodLife.com wondering why children of celebrities appear to be especially prone to depression, and eventual suicide.
