Is it immature for a parent to lavish large amounts of positive attention on a suicidal child?
Why would it be immature for parents to try to stop their child from commiting suicide? I don't understand what you're trying to get at here. You ask some very strange questions Andy.
Children who have been subjected to negative upbringing or have had to suffer negative emotions can be severely withdrawn or even hostile. Lavishing kindness on a child who has been mistreated can be the worst course of action as the child will think that there is no such thing as fairness.
Deal with traumatized children one on one and put yourself in the place of a broken child.
Your care will show that you love the child. The child will then think things over and weigh your sincerity in his or her heart. Just to know that abuses of the past are things of the past really are helpful.
