Getting used to the new teaching and learning method and constantly staying home have increased the children’s stress level, causing them to develop frustration, anxiety and other emotional problems.
If you notice your children seem to be more irritable than usual, or experience stomach upset, it most probably is due to stress. As parents who also develop stress in taking care of children, and worry about work and livelihood, we should learn to de-stress, or else our emotions, appetite and sleep quality will be affected.
