In times of difficulty, it is normal for children and other family members to have strong reactions such as feeling sad, irritable, or confused, having sleeping disorders, physical reactions and fear of the unknown. Prolonged distress may result in mental health conditions and long-term repercussions on the functioning and coping capacity of both children and caregivers.
Everyone reacts differently. Some parents may immediately develop a new home routine, some may struggle to balance work and home duties. Some children may experience intense sadness or anger, others may be withdrawn or act as if nothing has occurred.
