The rate of depression in children and adolescents continues to grow, leaving many parents clueless on what to do. What is driving this increase? Are things truly different for young people today, compared to twenty or thirty years ago? This episode welcomes a child psychologist to address these issues and more, including: how and why kids today are overloaded with activities, the different ways depression expresses itself in youth versus adults, how to tell when kids are “just being kids” versus dealing with depression, how to recognize the various signs of depression in young people, and how parents can stop feeling like failures.
