Here are some of the questions from our “mom test” – we have found that depressed teens answer yes to most of these questions, sometimes nearly all of them.

We have found that a lot of people think that the questions point to things “all normal parents do”. But we have reasons we include each question, and each reason is connected to some form of abuse or control rather than caring and healthy parenting, as we define it.

So this blog entry is meant to discuss this.
