How to Help Your Child Cope with Quarantine
For both children and adults alike, since the pandemic began, the world that we once knew has ceased to exist.
In children’s minds, they can no longer go out to their favorite restaurants or places in the malls, see their friends, play outdoors, go to school, or visit their extended family. And unlike adults who are more capable of processing their thoughts and emotions, children struggle with being able to process, let alone articulate what’s in their minds and hearts.
This kind of stress, which is unprecedented in their young lives, can be made evident in different ways, including their skin; flare-ups and irritation are some of those stress-induced symptoms on the skin. So when it comes to helping them cope with quarantine, we have to be more intentional about trying to see things the way they do, and be there for them through their own struggles.
