Hi again,thank you for asking question.depression and anxiety in children can be difficult to recgonize. as symptoms may be attributed to just bad temper. following signs may be the presenting features of depression in kids. depressed/ irrtiable mood.decrease interest in formerly pleasureable activities.appetite/ weight changes.sleep disturbancefatigued / loss of energy
some change in mood, or bad temper is common in kids and should not be overly diagnosed with depression or anxiety a parent, one knows in heart , that whether or not this is time to seek help and child is not acting usual.I hope this makes sense
