‘She’s happy’: Greta Thunberg’s father says climate activism helped her beat depression


When she decided to do this, we said,
you know, quite clearly that we would not support it. Why did you say that? Obviously, we thought it was a bad idea. Putting yourself out there with all the
hate on social media. Three or four years before she went
on the school strikes, she fell ill and she stopped talking, she stopped eating
and all these things. She stopped going to school.
She was basically home for a year. Now she’s just like any other … You think she’s not ordinary now
because she’s special and she’s very famous and all these things. But to me, she’s now an ordinary child. She can do all the things like
other people can. And she’s happy.
