Is it depression or hormones?

Sometimes it is hard to tell if your child is depressed, or if they are hormonal. Both can cause them to cry, be grouchy or even sleep a lot.

So, how do you know when it is one versus the other?

My thought is that it is hard to know, but if their behavior becomes a concern it is best to speak to your doctor.

What are things you would look out for when trying to decide between depression or hormones?

    It's ok to feel down once in a while. I think with depression it would be for long perionds and ongoing, as Sheilamentioned. Hormones are at certain times of the month and grumpiness happens in the best of us.
