Depression and anxiety are common in gifted children. The onset can be very early, and the adolescent years can be profoundly difficult. How much anxiety is normal? At what point does this become a medical issue? What does anxiety look like at different ages, at home and in school? And of course, the most important thing is what are the best strategies to help my family?
