Are you a &#99&#104&#105&#108&#100 who often feels down &#105&#110 the dumps &#97&#110&#100 depressed? This article &#111&#102&#102&#101&#114&#115 &#97&#100&#118&#105&#99&#101 for both &#112&#97&#114&#101&#110&#116&#115, other &#102&#97&#109&#105&#108&#121 members and &#99&#104&#105&#108&#100&#114&#101&#110 &#97&#98&#111&#117&#116 &#104&#111&#119 to deal with, reduce and even eradicate this depression.

I remember &#102&#114&#111&#109 &#109&#121 own childhood &#104&#97&#118&#105&#110&#103 many periods when I was &#118&#101&#114&#121 unhappy and &#115&#97&#100. I was the type of person who &#119&#111&#117&#108&#100 let aspects &#102&#114&#111&#109 &#109&#121 life get &#111&#110 top of me &#119&#104&#105&#99&#104 would &#97&#116 &#116&#105&#109&#101&#115 affect my &#115&#108&#101&#101&#112 patterns. I &#102&#111&#117&#110&#100 growing up &#116&#104&#114&#111&#117&#103&#104 &#99&#104&#105&#108&#100&#104&#111&#111&#100, into a teenager and ultimately &#105&#110&#116&#111 &#109&#121 adulthood as one big &#99&#104&#111&#105&#114 &#97&#110&#100 struggle. &#73 was &#102&#111&#114&#101&#118&#101&#114 &#99&#111&#109&#112&#97&#114&#105&#110&#103 &#109&#121 own &#108&#105&#102&#101 &#116&#111 &#116&#104&#97&#116 &#111&#102 my brother, sister and friends. Their lives &#115&#101&#101&#109&#101&#100 so &#109&#117&#99&#104 &#101&#97&#115&#105&#101&#114 &#116&#104&#97&#110 what mine was &#97&#110&#100 this made me feel quite jealous of them.

Looking back one of my &#102&#97&#117&#108&#116&#115 &#119&#97&#115 &#116&#104&#97&#116 I &#119&#97&#115 not &#119&#105&#108&#108&#105&#110&#103 to discuss my worries &#97&#110&#100 fears &#119&#105&#116&#104 my parents and &#98&#97&#115&#105&#99&#97&#108&#108&#121 kept them bottled &#117&#112 inside of me. &#84&#104&#105&#115 meant &#111&#102 &#99&#111&#117&#114&#115&#101 that I &#104&#97&#100 to deal with each &#97&#110&#100 every issue &#40&#112&#114&#111&#98&#108&#101&#109&#41 on my &#111&#119&#110 without any outside &#104&#101&#108&#112 or advice. I wish &#116&#104&#97&#116 I had &#98&#101&#101&#110 more open with my family as I think my life would &#104&#97&#118&#101 been that much happier if I &#104&#97&#100.

&#10&#73 am now a &#112&#97&#114&#101&#110&#116 of two children myself and am always looking out &#102&#111&#114 them. &#73 &#116&#114&#121 and gage &#104&#111&#119 &#116&#104&#101&#121 &#97&#114&#101 coping &#119&#105&#116&#104 life and if I &#102&#101&#101&#108 that they &#97&#114&#101 &#105&#110 an &#117&#110&#104&#97&#112&#112&#121 period &#111&#114 mood, &#73 then attempt to find &#111&#117&#116 what is causing &#116&#104&#105&#115 by trying &#116&#111 talk &#116&#111 &#116&#104&#101&#109. &#84&#104&#101&#121 &#97&#114&#101 not &#97&#108&#119&#97&#121&#115 happy to discuss these issues &#98&#117&#116 I then make sure that they understand that I will be here for &#116&#104&#101&#109 when they &#97&#114&#101 ready to &#111&#112&#101&#110 up. I &#116&#97&#108&#107 to them &#97&#98&#111&#117&#116 &#109&#121 own childhood and about the mistakes I &#102&#101&#101&#108 that &#73 made &#98&#121 keeping my own worries to &#109&#121&#115&#101&#108&#102.

&#10&#73 want &#109&#121 children &#116&#111 realise that they can talk &#116&#111 me about &#97&#110&#121 &#97&#115&#112&#101&#99&#116 of their &#108&#105&#102&#101 and that I will be here to help and not judge them. Life in general, with &#115&#99&#104&#111&#111&#108 as an example, &#99&#97&#110 &#97&#116 times &#98&#101 quite tough, &#119&#105&#116&#104 things such &#97&#115 bullying affecting a &#108&#111&#116 of &#99&#104&#105&#108&#100&#114&#101&#110. There is the added pressure of examinations and also trying &#116&#111 establish &#111&#110&#101&#115 self &#119&#105&#116&#104&#105&#110 a group of friends. Moving &#115&#99&#104&#111&#111&#108&#115 and &#103&#111&#105&#110&#103 through all &#111&#102 &#116&#104&#101 bodily changes &#99&#97&#110 also &#98&#101 quite uncomfortable for many children.

As a &#102&#97&#109&#105&#108&#121 we &#116&#114&#121 &#116&#111 make our &#99&#104&#105&#108&#100&#114&#101&#110&#115 &#104&#111&#109&#101 life as &#101&#110&#106&#111&#121&#97&#98&#108&#101 and relaxed &#97&#115 possible. This includes many family days out &#97&#110&#100 where &#102&#105&#110&#97&#110&#99&#105&#97&#108&#108&#121 &#112&#111&#115&#115&#105&#98&#108&#101, a family &#104&#111&#108&#105&#100&#97&#121 abroad in the summer.

My advice to any &#112&#97&#114&#101&#110&#116 &#119&#104&#111 has &#97&#110 unhappy or often depressed &#99&#104&#105&#108&#100 &#119&#111&#117&#108&#100 &#98&#101 to be very patient &#119&#105&#116&#104 &#116&#104&#101&#109 through &#116&#104&#101&#115&#101 periods. I, as I &#104&#97&#118&#101 &#97&#108&#114&#101&#97&#100&#121 stated would try and get them to talk about what is making &#116&#104&#101&#109 &#102&#101&#101&#108 in &#116&#104&#105&#115 &#119&#97&#121 and if they &#100&#111 not want to talk, would &#108&#101&#116 them know that I am &#116&#104&#101&#114&#101 for them if &#116&#104&#101&#121 &#100&#111 ever want a &#99&#104&#97&#116 etc.

My advice &#102&#111&#114 a &#99&#104&#105&#108&#100 &#119&#104&#111 &#105&#115 feeling &#100&#101&#112&#114&#101&#115&#115&#101&#100 would be &#116&#111 talk to your family, a &#102&#114&#105&#101&#110&#100 or a teacher. They &#115&#97&#121 that a &#112&#114&#111&#98&#108&#101&#109 shared &#105&#115 a problem &#104&#97&#108&#118&#101&#100 and I really &#98&#101&#108&#105&#101&#118&#101 in this statement. You do not have to &#98&#101 &#97&#108&#111&#110&#101 &#105&#110 this &#119&#111&#114&#108&#100 &#97&#110&#100 the advice that you are given could &#98&#101 &#111&#102 huge benefit to you. &#68&#101&#115&#112&#105&#116&#101 &#119&#104&#97&#116 &#121&#111&#117 might think all children have &#112&#114&#111&#98&#108&#101&#109&#115 and &#119&#111&#114&#114&#121 about &#109&#97&#110&#121 different aspects of their own life. Your parents &#119&#101&#114&#101 of &#99&#111&#117&#114&#115&#101 children many &#109&#111&#111&#110&#115 &#97&#103&#111 and may have experience &#105&#110 the &#105&#115&#115&#117&#101&#115 &#119&#104&#105&#99&#104 you &#97&#114&#101 not happy &#97&#98&#111&#117&#116. Do &#110&#111&#116 make the same &#109&#105&#115&#116&#97&#107&#101&#115 &#116&#104&#97&#116 I did by keeping &#116&#104&#101&#115&#101 problems to yourself as it does not help to &#114&#101&#100&#117&#99&#101 your &#102&#101&#97&#114&#115 or depression.
