Creatively cope stress of children during lockdown: A review
In December, 2019 the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the outbreak of a new coronavirus disease, COVID-19, to be a Public Health Emergency of universal Concern. WHO expressed that there is a high danger of COVID-19 spreading to different nations around the globe. In March 2020, WHO made the appraisal that COVID-19 can be described as a pandemic. In India, PM Mr. Modi has declared the lockdown across the nation from the midnight of 25th of March, 2020, clarifying that it is the only way to stop the chain of the disease. Only essential and emergency services will be allowed. This emergency is producing stress among people as well as children. At that point children’s movement outside is not possible, they are limiting themselves at their homes, they cannot meet their peers, or go to school, they can only study through e-learning, they even cannot play with their friends at nearby parks. To cope with psychological stress of children, we did a review-based study which includes some impact of psychological stress during lockdown. This paper aims to identify the signs of stress in children during lockdown in India and to help children coping with their psychological stress during lockdown in India.
