Specifically, I want to talk about depression and acting out. We've heard the expression "my kid is acting out" many times but what does it really mean and how does it relate to depression? Let's keep going.
As I explain in detail in a blog post on What does acting out mean and what can you do to help?,
acting out is your child's way of trying to communicate or express something through action that is impossible to communicate through words; their unique way of trying to cope with thoughts, feelings or experiences that are overwhelming to them.
