1. I fuigured why ot comment on a site I recommended, so I spent approximately
three hours on thissite looking through the different topics,as a parent I was
very intrigued at its content
2. the content in this site is very informative an a must see by anyone who
deals with children daily and parents as well. I believe that all the info is
very accurate, it just is overlooked most of the time, that is why it is so
important to check thissite out.
3. This has the potential to teach parents and teachers quite a bit of
information that can be very helpful in dealing with children and some problems
they may encounter

Technical Remarks:

This is an extremely easy site to navigate and no one should have any problems
finding all the information contained in it.

I spent about an hour and a half looking up and reading stories around this
topic. This is a topic you don't hear much about, but it seems to be on the
rise. There's alot of interesting/sad information available here. In our society
today it appears to be a necessity to be informed on this issue.

Technical Remarks:

This site is a great tool for anyone in contact with children. Everyone needs to
become more conscious for the signs of child depression. This site allows you
to move easily throughout the different pages.
