This normal healthy girl is just tired out, physically, and mentally. Never ever let anyone persuade you that your child is “depressed,” just because he/she is not cheerful 24/7.

Do you know that a number of researchers and statistics gatherers decided to collect some data on the number of children and teenagers suffering from depression, in the USA alone. In 2005, there were 8.7%. In 2014, there were 11.5% of these patients, which meant that there was an increase of 37%!

I really cannot understand on which basis they decided that children of a particular age group were considered to be depressive? These children were growing through adolescence, and every year, there would be a new generation of children entering their teens and growing through the pains of growing up, including hormonal changes, changes in their physical, emotional, mental and spiritual outlook. All these changes are natural. But suddenly, somebody decided that those changes and the change in the behavior patterns were symptoms of what some Doctor decided Was Clinical Depression. And all the rest of his Doctor ilk went along with those symptoms and theories.

So any normal, healthy, red blooded physically and mentally strong and healthy child could be diagnosed as being suffering from clinical depression, just because he was suffering through growing pangs, or was just being naturally rebellious or was just feeling gloomy because he wanted to be left alone, for a little while?

This book is going to tell you all about children and teenagers, who have unfortunately been inflicted with this particular mental disorder by adults who should have known better.
