When my kids were growing up I wanted them to make decisions for themselves. I was well aware that I could not always be there for them and at some point in life they would move out and be on their own. At that point they would not have one of their parents telling them if they were doing something right or wrong or correcting them etc. They had to learn judgement and to make their own mistakes. As parents we helped them but we also wanted them to be ‘self’ determined.
Teen screening is a marketing campaign by the pharmaceutical industry. Being a teenager is about learning and there can be some stress involved. The stress of exams and peer pressure. Learning that all relationships do not always work out. The mind is an amazing thing and can work out pretty much any problem or situation if applied. Taking a drug because one is depressed or not feeling perfect is only going to dull the mind and make it less effective.
