My son's kindergarten teacher has contacted me with the concern of my son seeming depressed for a few weeks. I had noticed it at home and I have been trying to do special things with only him. I have also numerous times tried to get him to talk about his feelings to me. He will not talk with me, his teacher, or my parents about what is wrong. For being 6 he is very critical of himself and it breaks my heart to see that. I don't know how I feel about counseling at such a young age- but I know he has many issues with his father. He had witnessed his father hurting me numerous times and heard him say that he was going to kill me. Does anyone know of anything I can do to open up my son and get him to be a carefree kid?
