Mental health time-bomb: How are kids coping? What are the long term effects of Lockdown on teenagers?

Friday, 24 April

As we enter the fifth week of lockdown in the UK, we're still not sure how long this will last. Some sources are telling us that we could be out of our homes in around a month or so, whereas others are telling us to expect to remain indoors until next year. With our children hearing mixed messages about what to expect, how is their mental health being affected? Are we witnessing the birth of a socially awkward age, marred by time in isolation? Or is there an unseen positive outcome from time spend indoors? Nadia and Mark look at the pressures our teenagers and young children face during lockdown. As the initial euphoria of time away from the classroom fades, how can we keep our children mentally and physically healthy? And what can we do to bridge the loneliness and social cravings our teenagers face. Find out in this episode of Confessions Of A Modern Parent. And they take questions and suggestions from listeners on their experiences in parenting roles.
