This paper is an experiential encounter with 12 suicidal pre-adolescent boys & girls. Their sense of futility & their internalized violence will hopefully provide psychodynamic understanding & prevention indices for early & successful intervention in latency-age suicidal children. Authors describe the family milieu of these children & emphasize that children as young as 5, must under certain circumstances be seen as having high lethality index for suicide.(SIEC)
