(iStock) 7 Triggers of Depression: Genes-Depression can run in families and if you have one parent who becomes severely depressed you are around eight times more likely to become depressed yourself. So far, no single depression gene has been isolated and the likelihood seems to be that combinations of genetic changes predispose certain people to depression.
(iStock) 7 Triggers of Depression: 7. Personality-Whether due to genes, early life experiences or a combination of both, the argument is that from early adulthood some people develop a generally gloomy view on life and become critical, negative, unhappy pessimists who worry and feel personally inadequate. People with these traits are argued to be more likely to suffer with major depressive episodes.

(FATCAMERA VIA GETTY IMAGES) How To Talk To Your Child About Abuse: Be patient-Despite your best efforts, your child may still not feel able to reveal abuse. Research by the NSPCC into young adults who had suffered childhood abuse found the majority did tell someone about the abuse in some way before they reached 18, but this was usually a long time after the abuse began. If they were sexually abused, it took an average of seven years after the first incident to reveal what had happened.

@davonwoodsfc Another innocent child failed 💔 Even amid the constant churn of men and women in and out of the busy Bronx bodega, one customer stood out as she walked to the deli counter to place her order: a cheeseburger and a bagel with cream cheese and jelly.

She was just a little girl, 7 years old, and alone. The store’s janitor, Ernie Slade, remembered her vividly. “She was standing right there with her food-stamp card, waiting for her food,” he said, pointing to a nook near the entrance.

It appeared that, under her pink mask, she had a bruise under one eye. Mr. Slade realized that to get to the store, she must have crossed a busy four-lane intersection of East 138th Street by herself. He thought about the police precinct nearby, and considered walking her there. No. Better not to
@nbcphiladelphia A child that was found dead in a duffel bag in West Philadelphia in March was identified as Damari Carter, a 4-year-old boy who went missing in late December more than a week before his mother and her boyfriend were charged in his murder, police confirmed with NBC10 on Wednesday.⁠
The investigation began on Dec. 30, 2023, after the Special Victims Unit received a report that Carter had gone missing in West Philadelphia.⁠
Officials said Damari’s mother, 30-year-old Dominique Bailey, had told her family members that her son had been struck and killed by a car. Investigators didn’t find any evidence supporting that claim, however. ⁠
On Jan. 4, 2024, investigators found Bailey and brought her in for questioning. The next day, Bailey told police she was involved in her s
