If the distress of parents is regularly pointed out in the media, what about the physical and psychological health of children in the medium and long term? It is too early to say, but there are legitimate fears of a lasting and marked deterioration in these parameters.
The suffering of the youngest children is not always palpable. The great resilience of which we know the children are capable is certainly a favourable element. Those who have returned to school after several weeks of strict confinement, have quickly returned to a social life, regained contact with their classmates and teachers. This is incomparable, but it is not the same as life before, because the sanitary constraints are there. Some are deprived of their leisure time, their favourite sport, music, outings, visits… So, outside the school environment and the restricted family circle, how can we contribute to their socialisation and development?
