Child Depression Is For Real: How to Assist Your Child
A few decades ago, depression in children was a gray area. They were thought to have an undeveloped cognitive and emotional structure that made them incapable of experiencing depression. In fact, it was something not taught in school, says WebMD Child and Adolescent psychiatrist Dr. David Fassler. He says, “It’s relatively recent that we are recognizing depression in children.”
These days, a growing body of studies supports that depression spares no one; even young toddlers can experience depression. If your child is showing depressive signs, don’t make the mistake of underestimating them.
Is Your Child Part of the Statistics?
“In the United States, the prevalence of major depressive disorder is approximately 1 percent of preschoolers, 2 percent of school-aged children and 5 to 8 percent of adolescents,” say Sung E. Son, M.D., and Jeffrey T. Kirchner, D.O., authors of Depression in Children and Adolescents (American Family Physician, 2000). These figures suggest a growing susceptibility to depression as the child grows older. Further, according to Psych Central, one out of four children will have depression by the time they get to high school, “with the average age of onset being 14 years.”
These statistics are not intended to scare you. Rather, they are a reminder that depression is for real. The signs and symptoms are not to be played down. If you know your child well, don’t ignore any new and unusual behaviors.
Know Your Child and the Depressive Signs
Childhood depression has symptoms similar to those of adult depression, though they may manifest differently, depending on the issues/stressors and the child’s personality. They range from melancholy, lethargy, and lack of interest in socializing to stronger, prolonged, and even disruptive reactions.
Red flag behavior can be fueled by a child’s limited ability to verbalize emotions, making them feel helpless, lost, or confused. They may express their depression through crying a lot, anger/moodiness, not wanting to eat or overeating, not sleeping or wanting to stay in bed all the time, or loss of enthusiasm for hobbies and interests.
A child’s inability to fully express feelings and thoughts can make it more difficult for you to decide if these are normal behaviors or legitimate symptoms of depression. Your knowledge of your child puts you in the best position to decide if they need to be screened for depression.
