ABSTRACT

The process of becoming social is known as socialization for it is socialization which makes human beings a superior species than animals. COVID-19 has raised several questions for the future generation but whenever the dust would settle down, education will be the biggest casualty. The present research paper is based on the data collected from working parents as well as home makers from different states viz Delhi, Jammu, Punjab, Karnataka, U.P in order to identify the problems they have faced while socializing their children and coming on terms with online mode of education. Going to schools, colleges and higher education institutions for that matter for acquiring knowledge has actually become a thing of past. It would not be incorrect to use “traditional education” for pre COVID education system.
