Being lazy and sluggish
Depression can make children lazy and they will become almost inactive and refuse to play or go outside. They will become slower and act as if they are disinterested.
Is Your Child Depressed?
Keep in mind, not all children suffering from depression will show these signs and symptoms. As depression is a very personal feeling, it depends on every individual child how they might behave and react to feelings of depression. Some depressed children might even function normally and rarely show any signs of depression, making it harder for parents to identify their disorder. This form of behavior is mostly common in individuals suffering from smiling depression.
If you feel your child is showing all or any of these symptoms of depression in children, then you need to take your child to a doctor for immediate treatment.
