No Dismissal of Concerning Emotions
If your kids show some concerning behavior, deciphering their attitude can be very challenging. However, you must not dismiss or deny it, but try talking to them about it. In addition to emotional breakouts, you should also be on the lookout for whether they lack concentration on their studies or any drastic changes in their body weight and appetite.
Not to forget, parents should also be concerned whether their kids are more tired than usual or not because it might be a sign of emotional distress or fatigue. On top of everything, you need to look out for signs of self-harm and provide them with good counseling, if necessary, because it will make them feel better and help increase their efficiency at school.
Don’t Push Them Too Hard
Sure, kids were taking online classes, but that mainly was neither enough nor effective. That being said, when kids rejoin school after COVID-19, they might not be as eager to learn as they were before; it’s a shared experience among youngsters and kids to display disobedient and disruptive behaviors after a long break. For this reason, if kids are unable to learn, try endorsing creative learning and accept a slow learning process at home.
The bottom line is that everyone has struggled during COVID-19, and there is no point in dismissing their feelings. So, acknowledge the trauma, let them be emotional, and heal together!
