desirable by parents.

9. EXPRESSING A SENSE OF HOPELESSNESS.

Listen well to children when they express a sense of hopelessness.

Take seriously young children and teens if they verbalize that they

have no hope for the future. Expressing feelings of hopelessness may

precede a suicide attempt.

10. PHYSICAL COMPLAINTS.

Children may complain of stomach aches or headaches. These complaints

may be accompanied by a withdrawal from typical activities, social

life, and a refusal to go to school. These complaints are cause for

concern and should be explored.

Older children and adolescents tend to be more similar to adults when depressed, with symptoms that are more familiar to the general public: Withdrawal, fatigue, irritability, loss of concentration,, greater interest in morbid themes, and loss of interest in good hygiene, along with signs listed above.

"It is not unusual for adolescents to go through periods of being sad or down," says KidsPeace President & CEO C.T. O'Donnell II. "In fact, it is pretty normal. However, it is important to realize that depression is serious, and some of these symptoms you may think are depression may be signs of other issues, including medical problems."

How to Take Action

When symptoms persist for more than a couple of weeks, or if there is more than one, it is time to take action. Check the signs of childhood depression at http://www.kidspeace.org , talk to your family doctor and get help. Be sure to touch base with your child's school to share information, as well. Best of all, to make sure you are protecting your children, talk to your kids on an ongoing basis so that you know what is normal for your kids and what is not. If you suspect a problem, you can find a National Depression Screening Day center near you by going to the website
