One night I was talking to my son about why he is getting bad grades in school. His response was" I am depressed mom, because I have to go to school and I feel like I do a lot of work." I responded everyone has to go to school son of you want to have a good life. He said but I am super lazy. and even if I do get a good life, I did a lot of work for nothing just to end up dying as if I never existed he said. He said he was tired of living and hates life. But he is actually always very positive and has fun, but his thoughts aren't like this. What should I do?

Get him to a doctor to get help with his depression ASAP!!!!!
You seriously don't think this is a red flag for a depressed child that could possibly end his life?
