Teens are full of emotions. One minute they can be happy, and the next they can be bummed out or depressed. Poor grades can make a teen depressed because they may not feel as worthy as their counterparts, or they may feel worthless. Peer pressure from other teens, family life, social status or even personal image can all play a role in how a teen feels. Sometimes, teen depression may result from environmental stress.
