Remote learning has taken an emotional, mental and developmental toll on the lives of all children. Many have fallen behind in their studies, missed out on big milestones and suffered from a lack of peer interaction that helps develop crucial social skills. With schools reopening,with all safety provisions, promising a more stable, interactive learning environment, the transition also presents new mental health challenges for students and parents alike.
Even though in-person learning is usually best for their physical and mental health overall, it could take a while for children to adapt back especially with things being hybrid and not completely offline. Kids are resilient, but they also function from an emotional point of view but without the complete maturity to process those emotions in a healthy way. Parental support is essential to a kid’s success in school. But as students grow more independent and develop and process their identity, it can be hard for parents to know which situations call for involvement and which call for a more behind-the-scenes approach.
Keeping this in mind we are planning a series of sessions to help parents understand teenage brain development, enable them empathise with their kids and realize their teenager is not out to get them. They are not your enemy. In fact,chances are, your child is doing the very best they can. There’s A LOT going on emotionally A LOT!
In our sustained endeavour to offer a healthy growing environment to our children, Deens Academy initiates Family Wellness sessions – online workshops for parents, with counsellors on relevant helpful topics.
