The pandemic has affected kids, the free birds. They like to move about freely and can’t stay at home. But now, they have an looming awareness over them that another wave will come and disturb them like it did before. Another lockdown will be imposed and they will be stuck at home.
The kids are being forced to study online, which is different from studying in a physical classroom. They are already under a lot of stress and have lost their freedom. Amid this, they found themselves at home that has caused them anxiety and got their parents worried for them. They miss the time when they used to go out to parks to play.
School life has disturbed the kids and made them socially inactive. They are confused about what is happening in the world and wonder if they would have to remain in their homes forever. Stress has increased and families are worried for them.
This new way of living has introduced mental sickness in them. Some kids have developed an eating disorder, some refuse to stay within their home at all times.
Life confined to homes creates mental anxiety among kids and end up feeling sick even when they are well.
