Your latest fight with your teen makes MMA look like a walk in the park. Another day, another round of yelling, eye rolling, and door slamming. You feel annoyed, frustrated, irritated, sad, and afraid. Very, very afraid.
You think back to your teen’s care-free elementary school days — with big smiles, laughter, and watching your kid run up and down the soccer field. Now, your teen is sullen, snappy, and moody. She’s always got her face in her phone, hoodie covering her head, headphones blocking you out. She hardly leaves her room and her grades are sliding. She doesn’t seem to even have friends. You’re not sure, but you’re wondering if these could be symptoms of depression in teens.
You’ve done everything you know to do. You’ve tried talking to her, lecturing her, punishing her. You’ve asked for advice from friends and have asked a beloved coach or youth pastor to talk with your daughter. But things seem to keep getting worse and you’re feeling hopeless and helpless. It’s gotten to the point where now your teen is complaining of headaches, stomach aches, and the dark circles under her eyes are proof that she is definitely not sleeping. You’re worried because you’ve heard that these can be anxiety symptoms in teens. Is that what’s going on??
