Parents in denial warning sign teen
I have boys, but I would assume the signs would be similar. It’s definitely not something to mess with.
I had depression in my teenage years, and still struggle with bouts of it now. I’m so thankful to my mom for noticing the signs and getting me help back then.
Tiffany c, You had a more that was aware of the signs and take action to help great news.
I survived the teen years with my kids wonderfully considering I did have one child who became depressed during this time. With physician care, he soon snapped out of it and hasn’t been depressed since. I now have two teen grand kids and I’ve been watching them for signs of depression but so far they’re doing okay. Thanks for the wonderful information.
My granddaughter will be a teenager soon so this is very good information to have on hand! I will certainly be sharing it with my son! Thank you for sharing! 🙂
This post is so important. It is good to know the warning signs. I think many of us were depressed as teenage girls, but no one talked about it 20+ years ago. It is good to help beforehand.
It’s hard to tell between depression and emotional with the teen girls. I think it is anyway. They’re so moody! Or my daughter is… she’s 16 now and the attitude came from nowhere. I”m loving her through and excited for the day it goes away as suddenly as it arrived. 😉
Rosey, yes, its hard to tell if your child is depressed or having a bad day at times. You have to understand if mood is constant and she is tearful maybe you need to seek a 2nd opinion.
Letting them know that you are there and learning to listen are very important. They’d hate to hear your teenage advice unless they ask for it.
Depression is such a hard thing to go through or see a loved one go through. I had depression in high school and I know it was hard on my mom and dad.
I think what “depression” looks like in a teenager is hard. I was wildly depressed not even recognizing the symptoms in myself until I was older. I just thought everyone felt like that.
I have many years before I have to worry about this kind of stuff about my daughter but I really hope I never really have to worry!
I have boys, so when some of our family friends visited this summer- I was a little taken back at the way some of the girls were treating each other. Such a hard age.
It is good to know the signs so we can help. I know that a lot of people I knew struggled with this.
Thanks a lot for these. MY eldest just turn ten and although she is a very good kid, I want to learn all of these things.
Amazing Post! These are signs I kept an eye out for in my oldest who are boys but the signs are still very similar. Now that I have my younger children (2 girls and a boy) coming up I am still very aware of how easily depression can attack if not noticed.
