Over the two past two years, the shutting down of children’s activities has had significant impacts on their academic, social and emotional development, as well as placing incredible strains on parents and educators.
Beyond the curriculum setbacks, children have also missed out on two years of life in the big world, where they would normally have been having an apprenticeship in reality.
Beyond this, the traditional dichotomy between home and school – church and state – has been obliterated, placing a huge strain on parent-teacher interactions. And as if this weren’t enough, the centrality of screens to children’s academic, social and recreational lives during the pandemic has created new challenges for children’s mental health, as well as for the parents having to manage things.
- Understand the academic, social and emotional impacts of the pandemic
- Discuss helpful guidelines to support both children and families in the months and years ahead
- Gain a perspective that helps parents and teachers slowly shift the sense of responsibility (and freedom) back to children. At times, this requires giving children the space to experiment and fail – something that allows them to take on anxiety adaptively, at the same time as they experience the sense of mastery and competence such growth generates.
