Parenting is no walk in the park. It can challenge parents physically, mentally, and emotionally. But it is all worth it, and according to leading providers of psychiatric in Maryland, it can have positive effects on the mental health of parents.
The world is dealing collectively with the devastating effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. It has devastated cities and has destroyed many lives. Families are barely coping with the stresses and challenges of raising kids, and now, this pandemic adds to the different problems they need to address. Some families will need mental health services, including psychotherapy, to deal with mental stress caused by staying at home for an extended period.
According to the WHO, parenting in the time of the COVID-19 pandemic needs to have proper planning. As children and their parents stay at home, the dynamics of their relationship changes. The WHO has a program called Healthy At Home, in coordination with UNICEF. They even have tips to keep your child safe online, while stay-at-home orders are enforced.
