Children are thought to be happy and carefree, which can make them a source of joy in your home. When your child seems to be constantly irritable and/or seems unable to manage everyday challenges at home or in school, you may want to give your child’s anger a second look. These outbursts could possibly be a sign or symptom of something more than anger, such as depression.
A depressed child may not exude the same cheerfulness or lightheartedness common in young people. Instead, your child may appear to be sad or uninterested in the usual things that would make them happy – toys, games, friends, etc. If your child is depressed, you may note other signs and symptoms including changes in eating and sleeping patterns, unexplained physical pains, and/or a tendency toward avoid people.
Depressed children are likely to have problems focusing and performing well in school. Symptoms can be easily misunderstood, your child may be more likely to be admonished, even disciplined, which could further induce sadness and confusion. Not understanding what is happening, your child may express their dissatisfaction, frustration and confusion in the best way they know how – anger.
Ignoring your child’s depressive symptoms or not responding with urgency could cause your child further suffering and pain. There could be benefit in seeing your child’s school mentors and/or pediatrician to discuss your concerns. There could be even more benefit from seeking out a professional counselor to ensure that your child receives proper treatment.
Depression is treatable, particularly if it is diagnosed early. Unfortunately, if depression is left untreated symptoms will likely increase and even worsen. Finding the right help may not be something you wish to delay.
Though the foremost concern is the child, know that your child’s depression can cause other members of the family to be affected as well. If you have other young children, they too may sense and feel the symptoms of the affected child as conflicts erupt every so often. You may also notice marital discord as tensions rise.
If your child is showing signs of depression it could be in your family’s best interest to see a licensed, independently contracted therapist. Your therapist will be able to provide the necessary counseling and therapies to address your child’s unique symptoms and help your family begin to heal.
