All About Depression in Children

All About Depression in Children

Depression in children is not a very uncommon phenomenon. But if the feeling of sadness persists over a period of time with little or no change to their behavior, then it can be seen as a symptom of depression. Children who are suffering from depression need immediate and utmost care as negligence may cause severe long term effects on the child. Read on to find more about them.

Symptoms:
Symptoms that indicate childhood depression vary. Some of the different symptoms which indicate depression are:

  1. Social withdrawal
  2. Irritability
  3. Feeling of worthlessness
  4. Difficulty in concentrating
  5. Reduced ability to function during events
  6. Continuous feelings of sadness
  7. Physical complaints

Causes:

  1. Depression in children can be caused due to the combination of a multitude of reasons.
  2. Children from a family history of depression are more likely to be suffering from depression.
  3. Similarly if the parents suffer from depression then it is more than likely that the child will also suffer from depression.
  4. Children from conflicted families or children and teens who are prone to substance or alcohol abuse can suffer from depression.
  5. Reasons such as physical health, environment, genetic vulnerability or biochemical disturbance can lead to depression.

Treatment:
The treatment process of depression in children is similar to that of adults and can be treated with psychotherapy and medication. If your child is depressed consult a general physician who after his or her diagnosis may refer you to a psychiatrist. The medical specialist will recommend psychotherapy.

In some instances, a child suffering from depression maybe be suicidal. Parents are advised to be vigilant and observe certain behavioral changes that the child may have adapted to or suddenly switched to.
Some of the signs are mentioned below:

  1. Changes in eating, sleeping or activities
  2. Isolating oneself even from family
  3. Talking of suicide, feeling helpless or hopeless
  4. Increased risk taking behavior
  5. Substance abuse
  6. Giving away possessions

Sessions at first and then opt for antidepressant medication if no significant progress is seen. The best results often result from a combination of prescribed medication along with multiple sessions of psychotherapy.

Hi doctor, my daughter is 1.9 years old. She is eating dust regularly despite of stopping her to do so. Recently, when I consultant children specialist, he said that there is a iron deficiency and he prescribed iron tonic and said that she will stop eating dust or clay. But this is not stopping yet all. Also, she is not speaking much except one word'mamma. Please help me in finding solution for her to stop this habit and speak some words. Thanking you,

Pediatrician, Pune
Eating clay /dust occurs in children with iron deficiency anemia, your pediatrician has done the right thing by giving iron supplements continue the same for 3-6 months, children tend to become iron deficient if they take excess of milk, restrict her milk intake to 2 cups per day, increase her iron intake in diet with substances made of jaggery, green vegetables, kishmish khajur, interact with her spend more time playing with her to improve her verbal skills.

Firstly I would advise you never force feed your child. Sometimes children like variations so try some new recepies for him. Small meals at small intervals. If still he has gaseous disturbance you can try with some mild carminatives for few days. Introduce all variety in diet.

It is very possible that the sores are due to too much face to face contact. The child can also get common cold and cough due to this. You can gently and respectfully ask your elders not to do it often, telling that the doctor has asked you avoid it.

I take long standing cold as running of nose continuously for last 3 months ie since 5 months of age. I advise to consult ent specialist too specially to check nostrils. Fever may either a co-incidence or super added nose infection. In the mean time, you may try phenergan syrup 2.5 ml 2 times in a day and paracetamol syrup 0.75 ml 8 hourly. For a day or 2.

Hi. I would recommend you to give him 2 doses of Hepar Sulph. 200 to be given after a gap of 10 minutes. Then keep a check on boils for few days. If you find some changes in size, let me know, will guide you according. (Don't repeat the medicine unless told by me again).

Gas forms in every individual so in kids too. Don't give any medicine for normal happenings in life. Since gas formation is no disease so no medicine and its dose.

My son is having sweet allergy where has if he had any sweets, chocolates, or biscuits in 12hrs. he will get much cough. Thats why we are not giving any food that couse to cough. please tell me any suggestion to not coming of cough

MBBS
Pediatrician, Ernakulam
He is unlikely to have sweet alllergy,however too much of sweets,biscuits is not a great idea. Excess of junk would reduce appetite and results in poor uptake of home foods.Please concentrate on fruits and vegetables. To avoid cough,remove him from dusty environment,no exposure to smoke,paint,polluted areas. Please note that children who attend day care centres have a increased tendency to coughs and colds

Your schedule is definitely hectic. We usually advice our patients to have 8hrs night rest and 2hrs daytime rest. Try to have a break when you r in office. Baby growth is more when you r beyond 5th month pregnancy so growth is as such not a problem.

My ward (child) is 13 year old having weight 26 kg only. His growth (both weight & hight) is not not normal as per age. His diet is (one chapati in lunch & dinner) very less & feel uneasy if try to eat more. Please suggest what shold I do? I am very anxious for my ward health.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Your child is not very much under weight. Some children eat less and do not put on much weight. In fact obesity is a leading problem in childhood. If we make sure he has no underlying diseases nothing need to be worried. There' s appetite stimulant and he can be given nutritional supplement. More can be personally discussed. If interested you can come to personal chat online. Regards
