  • i agree you'll notice a change in attitude and a lack of interest in anything but thats why communication is so important with your kids

  • I don't think you can totally if its a very young toddler or baby. For svhool age kids, you just have to ask them lots of questions and observe. If they aren't acting their usual self then something's going on.

  • It's also important to listen to the school. In Jr. High They kept trying to tell my parents that there was something wrong with me, but my parents were too selfabsorbed in their own anguish to notice at home or listen to the school on the subject.
