The outbreak of COVID-19 showed a significant impact on kids’ mental health. Kids are facing deep challenges that changed their ordinary lives and forced them with physical and non-physical barriers. They have missed their friends, face-to-face time and their social interactions that shaped a good portion of their day to day activities.
Parents’ mental health is also challenged by a number of factors including but not limited to the financial concerns, employment uncertainty and disruption of their ordinary life. They have also unwillingly been assigned to take constant care of their kids. Affected by all the factors, parents’ anxiety would have a direct impact on kids’ stress levels and hence their mental health.
