i agree with behavioral problems in friendship because i feel it very much..... depression is a serious matter so the earlier that it is diagnosed, the earlier the treatment.

parents sometimes think talking to their child would make things better.Well let me tell you this, my dad toke me to therapy because he notice i changed alot.Well it didnt work instead i felt more alone and depressed! It`s sometimes better of to leave them alone. I have been thinking about killing myself because i feel like im useless to people.

parents should check their adolescent child if there is any sign of depression. depression is a serious matter so the earlier that it is diagnosed, the earlier the treatment.

ofcourse, it's a serious thing that should be considered.I suppose this may be the later reflection of child hood, deppression due to certain undigestive experience.
