quarantine interferes with child development #MHPSS #MHPSSforChildren #QuarantineFacilities #childdevelopment

It is expected that a prolonged lockdown period has a substantial impact on child development, especially in middle childhood and adolescence. Socal development, in which peers play a fundamental role, is somehow disrupted. The consequences will only be visible in the middle and long term. For educators and caregivers, it is hard to balance physical protection with the hard impact of child development consequences. Consider facilitating peer contacts as soon as it is reasonably safe among other things.
