With Stay-At-Home orders across the country upending our lives, this has been a difficult time for all of us. But for children, who thrive on routine and have a hard time understanding all of this, it's been particularly stressful.
Experts say an estimated 15 million children have significant emotional and psychological issues, and are in need of help from a child psychiatrist. Some doctors are ringing the alarm, saying we're not focusing enough on the mental health and psychological wellness of children during this difficult time.
If you're concerned, speak with your child's pediatrician. They can help direct you towards age-appropriate resources to help your children better cope with the pandemic.
