    1. So they become almost dependent on their parents for that help. And the thing that they're fearing actually becomes more and more scary over time.

      This is cause of depression and anxiety

    2. JULIAN: We tend to get sort of stalled in a discussion of what is causing it. Is it smartphones? Is it not smartphones? Is it social media? Is it academic stress? And I think a much more productive way to be talking about this right now might be to say, for whatever set of reasons, kids are finding life hard right now. And so what can we do to start preparing them for a reality that may be more difficult than the one that their parents - or just to say my generation - grew up with?

      How different can problems be in different generations? Could they have faced the same problems? Why or why not?

    5. Is it something like, my kid is feeling anxious about whatever, and instead of teaching them to cope I say, OK, you can sleep in bed with me, like I did the other night because she was afraid of spiders that don't exist? Like that?

      Parents should help their kids and growing up teens, teach them how to deal with anxiety and depression, so that they could deal with it.

    6. Academic stress, social media, smartphones are putting kids on edge.

      I think this might be true because kids are trying cope with everything and they would be scared that they would miss out on school, social life, events and so on.

    1. The first REM sleep period not only begins too early in the night in people who are clinically depressed, it is also often abnormally long. Instead of the usual 10 minutes or so, this REM may last twice that.

      This is one of the effects of depression

    2. The more severe the depression, the earlier the first REM begins. Sometimes it starts as early as 45 minutes into sleep. That means these sleepers' first cycle of NREM sleep amounts to about half the usual length of time. This early REM displaces the initial deep sleep, which is not fully recovered later in the night. This displacement of the first deep sleep is accompanied by an absence of the usual large outflow of growth hormone. The timing of the greatest release of human growth hormone (HGH) is in the first deep sleep cycle. The depressed have very little SWS [slow-wave sleep, Stages 3 and 4 of the sleep cycle] and no big pulse of HGH; and in addition to growth, HGH is related to physical repair. If we do not get enough deep sleep, our bodies take longer to heal and grow. The absence of the large spurt of HGH during the first deep sleep continues in many depressed patients even when they are no longer depressed (in remission).

      Why does REM occur when someone sleeps, and why does it occur earlier when someone has depression?

    6. The more severe the depression, the earlier the first REM begins.
