Beyond getting sick, children are traumatized by the pandemic. From delayed speech and language skills to deteriorating social development, this pandemic is taking a toll on your kid’s holistic development. Closure of kindergartens during lockdown has significantly changed the lives of pre-school kids, their parents, and their teachers. In this blog, we will discuss the impact of these changes on the mental and physical well-being of children in this developmental stage. Kids are now annoyed and frustrated as they have been indoors for 2 years in a row. Constrained access to public places has limited the interaction of kids with their peers. They express their psychological distress by being confused, frustrated, and anxious because they are confined to their homes all time.
Children are not getting the same social exposure they used to get in schools and they are battling with isolation, uncertainty, and a stressful environment at home. Here are some tips you can follow to help your kid with dealing with stress:
Most of us are worried about our child’s health and development. Once life opens up again and life returns to normal, it is likely that schools will introduce programs to provide counseling to kids to rectify social anxiety. Children are resilient so we are hopeful that they will come back to their normal self if nurtured with proper care and diligent attention. All of us as a society can work to ensure the health and wellbeing of our kids by giving responsive caregiving.
It’s a stressful time for everyone here, but in the midst of it, children’s development doesn’t hit the pause button. They continue to learn and grow. So we must focus on their holistic development which is only possible if parents ensure that they have taken all the necessary measures discussed above.
