Mental health in childhood means reaching developmental and emotional milestones and learning healthy social skills and how to cope when there are problems. The pandemic has increased the mental burden on children. The interactions that make childhood a formative period in the child’s life such as playing with friends, sports, regular schooling, interacting with others, etc; are all absent to a large extent. Nowadays school classes, tuition/coaching, playing games, reading, etc all activities are online making healthy social interaction almost non-existent.
That is why it is imperative that we as caregivers learn to understand child behaviour and deal with the many emotional, psychological, physical and other setbacks faced by children. It is imperative that we learn to understand the causes, hidden triggers, symptoms and seek help when required.
Last week we explored the issues that affect pre-teens. This week, we focus on teenage.
