As a dad, it really tugs at my heartstrings anytime someone calls me and asks how do I help my depressed teenage daughter? I’ve got some pointers today. Teen depression, it’s become a big concern. In fact, suicide is the number three cause of death for people under the age of 25. That’s pretty significant.
Now not all depressed teens are suicidal. In fact, most of them are not, that’s just one of the symptoms or possible manifestations of depression. There’s a lot of other teens who are experiencing depression and they may even be in the early stages of it so as you look for changes in behavior, things that are not typical for your son or daughter, how can you help your daughter who has depression? I’ve got three suggestions for you today, maybe we could call them rules. Can we elevate them to that status?
