The pandemic has made families battle with much more pain than what a Coronavirus could do. Coronavirus made 12-year-old Hayden lead to suicide but not the way you think. His dad, Brad Hunstable is sharing his family’s overwhelming story to bring issues to light about the effect the coronavirus is having on Americans’ psychological well-being.
The Texas father shared the story that aided in paving the way to the passing of his 12-year-old Hayden that happened April 17, only four days before his thirteenth birthday celebration.
He was a very good boy, he made sure he completed his chores, and being a decent elder sibling to his 8-year-old sister, he did what was required to get another computer monitor.
But unfortunately, anger took the best of him, it made him toss his controller on to the newly bought monitor, breaking it as well. That worsened the situation for Hayden. It was social distancing that Hunstable says set off his child’s heartbreaking move to end his own life.
He explained that his child wasn’t depressed, or he just didn’t pay keen interest in the child. “Social distance is hard enough for grown-ups, it’s significantly increasingly hard for our children,” he said. “I accept my child would be alive today in the event that he was in school.”
Rather, it’s a case for bringing issues to light. By sharing his family’s awful experience, he plans to point out youngsters’ emotional well being during this pandemic.
Hunstable has founded Hayden’s Corner, following this tragic incident.
17/ so what now? First please everyone talk to their kids. #conversationsmatter. I know my son would be alive today if he had been in school, around friends, in soccer.

I have been in love with writing ever since I was a kid. This led me to study English literature for my higher education. I am also an LLB(Law) graduate. I am always curious about happenings in the world. It could be anything and everything. Curiosity to explore and learn new things made me a content writer. I’m focused on improving my writing skills and increasing my passion for knowledge. Aside from being a total bookworm, I love to dance, I do Tiktok, the list goes on!
Here’s a little sneak peek into my personal life. I’m a single mother, and I have a beautiful baby girl. My life would never have been better without her.
