FB, my kids were a few years older when they started therapy. But one ended up in the hospital with depression. That would have been hard enough for any parent to take, but what really pushed me over the edge was my over-identification with her pain. It was so hard to cope with that, that's what got me back into my own therapy. My daughter, thankfully, recovered and has not had a recurrence. So from my own experience, that might be a very fruitful area for you to work on. Getting myself disentangled from my child in terms of our emotional lives was one of the most important things I've done for myself and my family. I had to learn which were my feelings and which were hers instead of throwing them all together in one big bonfire. It also helped me sort out guilt issues. Having a handle on my own feelings has helped me to help my kids.
