My experience with my daughter's depression. I was hell-bent on not medicating her. I was refusing her treatment for what I would eventually find out is a serious illness and could have cost me her life. Read our story and decide what is best for you and your child.
There is no "rule book" for parenting kids of any age but as the mom of a teenager, I've learned a few things and I feel compelled to share. I'm certainly no expert but maybe I'm doing something right because on a regular basis, parents/school faculty will tell me how impressed they are with my daughter. No this is not a bragging "my-kid-is-wonderful" post.
