Keep in mind children are not just small adults. This is from 3/08, American Family Physician (not wikipedia):


Patients with depression have a risk of suicide that is 20 times above normal. (34) The short-term risk of suicide is not decreased by antidepressants, which may actually increase this risk. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a black box warning regarding increased suicidal ideation and behaviors in children, adolescents, and young adults (18 to 24 years of age) treated with antidepressants.

A retrospective analysis of older patients showed the risk of suicide to be five times higher in the first month of treatment with an SSRI compared with patients treated with other antidepressants. (34) However, a large meta-analysis found only a trend toward self-harm that did not meet statistical significance. (35)
