Look out for these mood changes

“Parents may start seeing signs of depression and anxiety about the pandemic and isolation. They should be mindful of symptoms such as changes in sleeping and eating habits as well any significant changes in their moods with feeling down or more irritable. Anger is often seen as a normal thing for teenagers but most people do not realize that anger and irritability can also be signs of depression or other mood disorders,” says Cofield.
