Raising Boys: Depression in children can be hard to diagnose in its early stages. While all boys experiencing family or personal problems exhibit some sadness and moodiness, those sad, helpless, or anxious feeling can also be depression.

While all boys experiencing family or personal problems exhibit some sadness and moodiness, those sad, helpless, or anxious feeling can also be depression.

Depression in children can be hard to diagnose in its early stages. You need a  second set of eyes so to speak.

Since children have somewhat different symptoms of depression than adults, what signals childhood depression?

 1. Mood change: Gloomy, sad, unhappy, despairing, or hopeless feelings.

2. Change in appetite: Loss of interest in food or effortless weight loss is more common than overeating.

3. Sleep change: Regular problems with falling asleep–or wakening early without being able to go back to sleep–could signal depression.

4. Changes in school work.

5. Changes in socialization.

6. Overreacting to criticism.

7. Sexual promiscuity.

8. Delinquency.

9. Thoughts or threats of suicide.

10. Healthy, well child complaining of illness.

 

 

Raising confident boys and parenting boys to become happy, healthy men.

11. Failure to enjoy activities previously enjoyed or exhibit general feelings of tiredness, listlessness or lethargy. 

12. Changes in activity levels: Boys  may seem to be operating in slow motion or seem constantly jittery or agitated, even hyperactive.  

No depressed child has all of the above symptoms but even one symptom deserves your attention.

Early diagnosis and treatment by professionals are essential to boys who are experiencing depression. 

Once your son has experienced major depression, he is at risk of developing another depression in less than five years.
