My teen daughter seems to be so upset and depressed lately. She was recently laid off from her job and just failed her road test for the second time. She keeps saying she does not want to hang with her friends because she is jealous of them (they have cars) and keeps saying she can't stand herself and is such a failure. She has applied to 30 jobs and cant seem to find one, she says she feels like the failure of the family because two cousins her age are both going to ivy league colleges. When she failed her road test the other day she was so hysterical i had to come home from work and literaly cried all day. Any advice?
edit: hi everyone i just wanted to give an update she got a job shortly after at a local department store and loves it and is has her road test coming up soon. however it is still not easy she still cries almost daily and had a breakdown a week ago when her friend got his license and a brand new car. we've contacted a psychiatrist but there is a long wait, she is now saying she wants to defer her first semester of college and not attend. this is making her even more heartbroken even though we both are against her doing this. any new advice or comments.
