Shame: I’ve failed as a parent!
Depression is a complicated condition; the experts are still debating the causes. Blaming yourself for your loved one’s depression doesn’t help anyone
In truth, to explain honestly, it’s sad that I feel the need to justify and explain how serious an issue depression is for teens and even younger children

Sometimes, making the right decisions for the people we love is hard.
“There are wounds that never show on the body that are deeper and more hurtful than anything that bleeds.”
― Laurell K. Hamilton
Again, it is important to remember that depression is not a failure. In spite of what others say. Nevertheless, with this in mind not weakness on your part.
