Depression in a 5YO
My five year old is showing signs of depression. Hes been very sensitive, when he cries he says things like i just want to be sad. I dont deserve to be happy. A few times he said things like hes done with his life. Mind you he lives a very good life. He does not get spankings. When hes in trouble and i move towards him only to talk he freaks out and yells sorry repeatedly. We never gave him the impression of trying to hurt him. I dont understand where all of this is coming from. Please any advice will help.
