Is my daughter on the path to depression?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

Every now and then, my 10-year-old daughter cries (usually when she doesn't get her way) and says things like, "Nobody loves me!" My family has a history of depression and I wonder if my daughter's behavior is normal, or if it is a sign that she is depressed.

Sounds like a sign of wanting attention.

I dont think so. That sounds like pretty typical pre teen girl over reacting/dramatics

sounds like she is just being a girl to me.  If you are worried about it maybe ask her doctor about it. Good luck! :)
