It took me so long to write this article: Children in Distress – Depressed and Anxious and it was very painful to write. The children in this article are real kids with real problems. And they are so young, mostly either 3 or 4 years old.
To think that children at that age have to deal with problems (see list in labels below) that even adults would have difficulty working through saddens me to my core.
I watched these children. I took care of them. I wish I had known how to handle their problems correctly, but I am not a psychiatrist or even a psychologist and I am left with not knowing how they are now, if they ever got the help they needed, and how many more of them are suffering with psychological disorders and not getting any help.
The only thing I could do for them was to provide a safe environment for them and only for a very short time.
Other than real help offered at the end of the article, the bright spot of this article is the photo I am attaching to this blog. He is my grandson, Nolan. The photo was taken in February 2008.
