Treatment of major depressive disorder in children and adolescents

I still am confused about the use of antidepressants in children. I could never conceivably give my child a drug that will alter the way their brain works, a drug that has NOT been tested for long term effects, a drug that seemingly does not impact the course of the condition. I’m not a therapist, but I would guess that teaching these kids life skills and learning how to deal with life’s curves will create a stronger, healthier child. Medicating the issue will only teach that child that drugs are the answer to life’s problems.
