Covid-19 has drastically affected our lifestyle due uncertainty and restrictions. The whole world is going through unimaginable physical and psychological stress for more than a year. Families are facing the pressure of financial issues, job insecurities, fear of losing their dear ones, and day-to-day life issues.

Young children are also facing psychological and emotional pressure due to the pandemic, even though, they can’t express it verbally.

Children are becoming anxious due to feelings of insecurity and ambiguity. The whole of last year, they have been deprived of their normal social life, schooling, and play, resulting in mental and emotional disturbance which is manifested by different behavior problems.

Children are suffering from mental health issues due to stress and anxiety. Their behavior issues are manifested as increased irritability, adjustment difficulties of online schooling, stubbornness, temper tantrums, dietary issues, and the most serious being overuse of mobiles or excessive screen time. A lot of parents are unable to handle the behavioural issues of their children.
