Consequences of Corona: Children's education started deteriorating due to panic, cases doubled in epidemic

Nervousness causes a rapid heartbeat, a feeling of twitching in the abdomen, a feeling of nervousness and restlessness. Children may have to deal with this problem before taking an exam or in a similar stressful situation.

The youth population, ie children and adolescents suffering from depression and anxiety, have suffered a major emotional blow during the Corona pandemic. But now it is learned that these mental disorders are spoiling the education and studies of the children. Experts say that these days the effect of panic among the children surrounded by uncertainties is now visible in the classrooms as well.

According to Elizabeth J Edwards, Senior Professor in the Department of Education at Queensland University Brisbane, one in seven citizens in Australia alone suffers from anxiety. At the same time, this situation has become even more worrying in children. Across the country, 6.1 percent of girls and 7.6 percent of boys are facing this negative sentiment.

What is panic?

Nervousness causes a rapid heartbeat, a feeling of twitching in the abdomen, a feeling of nervousness and restlessness. Children may have to deal with this problem before taking an exam or in a similar stressful situation. When panic becomes unbearable it becomes a major problem affecting our daily life.

Panic cases doubled

Studies say that the average age of onset of panic in children has been observed to be 11 years. It is worth noting that these figures are from before the epidemic. But research published in August this year by the Journal for the American Medical Association (JAMA) states that 25 percent of young people worldwide suffer from extreme anxiety. It was told in the study that during the Corona period, the cases of depression and anxiety have doubled compared to the earlier figures.

Impact on academic performance

According to the theory of attention control, nervousness affects mental abilities. It has a negative impact on the level of functioning of adults and on the education of children. Children who experience more anxiety may focus on worrying thoughts in the classroom rather than on their work.

Help children with these measures

1- Encourage children going through panic

2- Focus on innovating after failures

3- Praise their small successes or efforts and report upcoming improvements

4- Pay attention to their thoughts and feelings, listen to them, and be flexible
