Reporting Depression

In yet another article about the seemingly modern trend of depression, The New York Times reports on the possibility of depression in preschoolers – children not even in school.

Why is it that these young children don’t seem to find happiness in anything? Author Pamela Paul writes that these preschoolers spend their time staring into space and thinking negative thoughts. They feel bad, rejected, and not loved. So is it the parents’ fault or is it something deeper?

From a biblical standpoint we know that each and every one of us is born a sinner. There is no “innocent child.” Perhaps our best solution for these disconsolate  preschoolers is to introduce them to the joy of the Lord and surround them with the love of God.
