How can I tell if my 4 year old daughter is depressed or actually sick or just faking? Every night when I tell her to go to bed she wants to talk about her papa and let me know she misses him. I told her she could talk to him but he wouldn't be able to answer her. Then she will go to bed and come back 5 minutes later telling me her tummy hurts and that she doesn't feel good. I give her a kiss and hug and she goes to bed. Usually that keeps her in bed. But in the morning it is almost the same thing, she tells me she is sick and doesn't feel good and that she misses her papa. After I get her up and she gets going she is ok. But it is the same routine every night and it is starting to get to me. She and her papa were extremely close the only time they were away from each other was when he was at work. He has been there for her since the day she was born up until he passed away in January. I just want to help her and do the right thing. .
