The most common symptoms of depression in children are irritability, sadness, less involvement in the acitivities or games to enjoy. This is the mental illness that must be addressed properly. The school going children usually become irritant to every person including parents and friends. The communication of the children with us depends upon the behavior of the parents, careers, and teachers. It is rarely seen that a child comes forth on his own and says things about his mood or emotions. When we see children looking sad or angry and observe them withdraw from their circle of friends or activities, these little things are the first signs we may get that something is wrong with a child, but sometimes we overlook these signs, which we should not. The symptoms of depression in children are:-1-Children start crying more as compared to their normal routine, feel sad, desperate or powerless
The younger a child is when he starts to show depression the more serious and severe the problem is likely to be. Children don't know how to handle these stressful situations and thus may end up doing the wrong thing, it is the duty of the grownup around the child to help him. We must take note of these symptoms when a child is growing up and if he shows them, then we should help solve his problem in everyway we can.
