Thanks for posting this Crissy....I don't have children but I do have a niece and nephew, my sister's kids, 7 and 10...and thank God they don't exhibit any signs of depression....despite the fact my sister did struggle with it at one time....

On the other hand, I recognize ALL the symptoms in myself when I was a child....Thanks for posting:)

Whats so devious about depression in children is we are so used to NOT invading our kids space that it often goes unrecognized. I invade sometimes :)
