Don't ignore teenage depression, don't think it's a child's hypocrisy

In recent years, tragedies of student suicide have occurred frequently. Most of the reasons for students committing suicide are too much academic pressure, disharmonious parent-child relationship, and too depressing family atmosphere. Some parents, even after their child commits suicide, do not know that their child has depression.

It's important to note that depression is not depression!

Depression is an emotion, and depression is a disease. Depressed people don't feel happy at all times. The impact of depression on adolescents is increasing, and it is imperative for parents to understand the manifestations of depression. The manifestations of depression in adolescents: First, it is not a disease. Patients are generally younger and do not express emotional problems, only some physical discomfort. Their "disease" seems to be very serious, chronic, or recurrent, but after many medical examinations, no problems were found, and after taking many medicines, the "disease" still showed no signs of improvement. Second, rebel against parents. It is generally manifested as not tidying up his room, throwing clothes, washing his face slowly, combing his hair slowly, eating slowly, not completing homework, etc. The more serious manifestations are truancy, not returning home at night, running away from home, turning over old accounts with parents (rough education in childhood, the impact of parents’ divorce and remarriage on oneself, etc.), and having to make a clean break with parents, etc. Third, maladaptation. The patient is deeply stressed by the environment, often upset, unhappy, unable to study with peace of mind, and urgently asks parents to find a way for him to change classes and schools. 4. Suicidal behavior. Critically ill patients use various means to commit suicide. For those who fail to commit suicide, if only the life is saved and no antidepressant treatment (including psychotherapy) is given to them, the patient will still commit suicide repeatedly. If you notice that your child does have a psychological problem, don't be afraid to avoid the doctor! Don't think that the child can recover by self-regulation, and don't think that the child's depression is just the child's squeamishness and ignore it. At this time, taking the child to seek help from a psychiatrist is the best solution.

The root causes of adolescent depression are basically concentrated in two aspects: "family" and "school"

Adolescents' living environment is relatively single. Live a life of two points and one line between campus and home. Even if depression is rooted in these two places, they have to face it for a long time and it is difficult to break free. As a result, school families often become a source of persistent stress for adolescents. In school, academic stress, interpersonal relationships, and school violence can all be triggers for teenage depression. Triggers of depression are more complex in families than in schools. Surveys and studies have shown that family inheritance, family structure, parental personality characteristics, and family upbringing have varying degrees of influence on adolescent depression.

Behind a sick child is often a sick family

The first type is a "chicken baby". Parents have high expectations for their children's learning. Such children are usually very well behaved in elementary school, work very hard, and rank among the best in grades. As a result, as soon as they enter junior high school or high school, they suddenly become depressed, they can't learn how to get in, and they don't want to go to school at all. This situation is more common in some international schools. Generally, fathers are engaged in a high-paying job and are very busy. They travel all year round and basically ignore their children, while mothers stay at home full-time with them. Some mothers are also excellent and well educated. They choose to resign for the sake of their children. If they do not resign, she may have a good career development. That is what we often say, "absent father, anxious mother, crazy child". At this time, only if the father intervenes between the mother and the child, separates the two of them, and raises the child with the mother, the child can get rid of the mother's control and desire for him, and the mother can relax a little. Otherwise, the child is likely to have problems in the future. The second type is children who are frequently subjected to domestic violence. The difference between these children and "chicken babies" is that their grades are often not very good. Children grow up in fright, worrying about "when will my father/mother hit me", and their cognitive function is impaired. It's even worse if you've also been bullied at school. Over time, the child will be lonely and hopeless because there is no support anywhere, and it's a very bad vicious cycle. The third type is a child whose childhood has been repeatedly separated from his caregiver. It is best not to change the caregiver until the child is three years old, so that a stable attachment relationship can be formed between the child and the caregiver. Only when there is a stable attachment relationship in the early stages of life can children have a sense of security, and when they interact with people in the future, their mentality can be optimistic and stable enough. Conversely, children who experience separation from their caregivers many times in their early years are not only prone to depression, but also to form borderline personalities when they grow up. A distinctive feature of borderline personalities is a particular fear of being abandoned by others. Whether it is making friends or falling in love, he will be very worried about the other party leaving him. Once he feels that someone is going to leave him, he will be in pain, and even cut his wrists to commit suicide. Of course, we also need to know that the vast majority of parents do not intentionally hurt their children and insist on "forcing" their children into depression.

If someone with depression is around, help them in the following ways:

1. Make it clear that you want to help; just listen, not judge , do not comment on or interfere with the events that your child describes when he communicates with you. 2. Learn more about depression. 3. Encourage children to exercise outdoors and participate in more social activities. 4. If the child has the idea of ​​self-harm, do not leave them alone, and take away the medicine and sharp objects at the same time. In the meantime, seek professional help.
