I'm a little worried about my 6 y/o. Granted he's been sick, getting over a virus, so he's been feverish & sluggish at times but we removed him from school at spring break (2 weeks ago) to begin homeschooling and I'm worried that part of his sluggishness might be depression over the change.
He was having a hard time in school, getting into trouble a lot, and our communicating with the teacher trying to find solutions didn't seem to be going anywhere so we explained to him what we were going to do and he has been happy about it but has told me he misses his friends. We've all been sick for the past 2 weeks so we've not been getting out of the house much and have watched a lot of movies since it's so cold out. If your children have depression, how young did they start to show signs & what were they? We have a history of depression on both sides of family.
