I recently read an article about how depression in parents can have an impact on their children’s weight. This was an eye opening article for me, as I never considered how parental mental health could have an effect on a child’s physical health. It made me realize how important it is for parents to be aware of their own mental health and to take steps to ensure that they are taking care of themselves. It’s also important for parents to be aware of the signs of depression in their children and to get them help if they need it. All in all, this article is a reminder of the power of parental mental health on the whole family.
