I think two of my three sons are depressed. They are ages 5 and 4.
If anyone has experience of this, what advice can you offer, please?

Children of all ages can get depressed. What are you seeing in them that makes you think they are depressed?

Sorry, I don't have children this age, but I do have the suggestion to try to get them to be active, away from video games/television and challenge them in fun ways. If they like playing with mega blocks or doing creative things encourage that. Try to get them to socialize with other kids their age as well.
Firstly, what makes you think that they are depressed?
