Prevention of Teenage Depression

Parents can take efforts to prevent teenage depression, though there is no sure way to prevent teenage depression. The chances of teenage depression is higher when one or both the parents undergoes depression or anxiety or even great amount of stress. Parents have to learn to be calm and gentle while communicating with their teenage children. There are a few things that parents can do for reducing the chance of teenage depression.

1. Spend time with your teenage child everyday.
2. Praise your child's accomplishments and strengths whatever be the area. .
3. Talk with your teenage child on topics she likes or is excited about.
4. Give positive feedback for positive behavior.
5. Do some activities together like preparing meals, eating together or watching a movie
6. Allow your teenager to express his or her feelings. Ask open ended questions like "What is exciting this week ?"
7. Respond to your child's anger without reacting with anger. Instead stay calm and handle the situation gracefully.
Graduate yourself on the same day your child graduates on something called "Understanding your Teen" and "Praising your Teen"

Remember parents have to make adjustments understanding the teenage child's needs and preferences. Doing so will pay back in the long term when the child leads a successful and happy life.

Withdrawal symptoms

Withdrawal symptoms can be terrific. The original problem could be a simple abnormality. But after being given drugs, taking away the drugs can result in serious trouble in many cases. Drugs have to be tapered very carefully by a psychiatrist and follow up during and after drug withdrawal is crucial. Many can experience in high magnitude the ill effects of withdrawal including imagining and believing in unreal things. So follow up is absolutely necessary.

In my case since I stopped follow up during the teenage ended up living mildly depressed for major part of my lifetime. I pray others don't end up the same. Hence I request all teenagers to regard this post with your full attention.

Don't feel bad and succeed

Don't feel bad for you are having issues. Often times the most intelligent gets these problems. It is all due to how our genes are made up of and that in turn dictates our thought patterns. Our own thought patterns are responsible for where we are now. We have to wisely choose our destiny. Though our genes make us think in a certain way, by conscious efforts we can learn to think in a different way that will be good for our health. Be aware of the great potential each one of us have and always see the
good within yourself and others. For all unfavorable things that happen around just be a passive observer, don't make any judgements or do any labelling. Do deep breathing exercises that will give you positive thinking. Wish you good luck for success

Teenage depression can cause serious twists for some

Teenage is the onset of wisdom and happiness for most; yet there are enough number of teenagers falling into the trap of depression. Teenagers who suffered clinical depression might have ongoing depression for most part of their life, the reason being there is no one good solution to be mentioned as a cure. If they are lucky, the depression could last for a temporary period and they are back on track soon. This post is to help teenagers who have undergone depression or going through depression.

Dear teenagers,
Please understand life is sometimes discouraging and disappointing. But by being hopeless, or entering the worries or disappointment cycle or for that matter, getting into the cycle of negative thoughts is going to rob the great happy moments that nature has bestowed on every human being. Try to understand life is to live with imperfections in terms of others doing fraudulent activities, harming and insulting. The best example is a parent could insult you by accusing, critisizing and so on. But understand that they don't do it on purpose. They have their own limitations and they do out of circumstances. Always develop a habit of
positive thinking and an attitude of come what may. Whatever comes across, be content with that. Try to realise your talents, strengths, love for others and remember these are your power points. It is always better to realise earlier than realising after several years like me. I was literally talking to myself as "Life's circumstances are unfavorable to me for several years. Please don't do the same mistake as me. Never blame circumstances, What it matters is how we take the external things that happens to us. Take anything lightly and take responsibility for your actions that start from thoughts. Understand the world around you loves you though it looks as though people are not loving. Read self-help books,
consult doctor if necessary, but more than the doctor, it is your attitude that can help you. Wish you good luck!
