Depression affects children the same way that it affects
adults. Now in most cases, trauma is a reason why depression
will affect a person. Of course, trauma affects those of all
ages, including children. It should be no surprise that
children suffer from depression also. The youngest case of
depression ending with suicide is five years old. With this
information in hand, it can and should be taken quite
if you supsect a child is sad or depressed.
1. The Numbers
In fact, three out of every 100 children are depressed. Its
hard to tell what causes depression in children, but every
aspect of a child or teens life affects their state of mind.
With one bit of criticism, a child could break down and become
unreachable. Telling whether or not a child is depressed can
quite different from telling if an adult is depressed.
2. For Parents
Parents need to know that your child isnt depressed because
are a bad parent. You child could be depressed for many
and death of family or friends is usually the root of the
cause. Some signs that your child may be depressed at absences
from school, isolation, change in behavior, and headaches. Of
course, they could have the typical signs like overeating,
eating too little or not sleeping or oversleeping.
3. The Signs Of Depression
The signs of depression are greatly varied. You might not even
notice it at first or push it off as normal behaviour. Life
goes fast and we tend to notice the things that we dont really
want to see. The only way to find out how your child feels is
to ask them how they feel. Be active in your child or teens
life. Do activities together and have some time set aside to
talk about the trauma of being a kid in days world. Remember,
youre not a bad parent if you snoop around a little bit.
