Teenage depression is a common illness but the different form it takes on sometimes depends upon the childhood environment. Anxiety is one of the common forms of depression. It can occur from genetics or from the environment a teen experienced throughout their life.
Some teenagers who suffer from anxiety had childhood stress brought on by:
• Stressed out and neglected parents
• Expectations of high grades
• Childhood abuse
• Constant tension within the home
• Family responsibilities
• Emotionally unavailable parents
Due to these factors, the teenager never fully learned the proper ways to deal with their emotions. Remember, children intimidate what their parents do and when a child sees how a parent handles their problems, the child (who is now a teenager), follows the same approach.
