Abstract

Children’s developmental phases have been construed over the last year by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. The early years in children’s development are very important because every action affects their brain and stimulates a reaction for the rest of their lives. The sudden change in children’s daily lives affects their understanding of how a normal day should be. Children are developing anxiety disorders which has led to a spike in childhood obesity because of the lack of structure in the child’s day. Children are trying to grasp an understanding of the virus in correlation to the family’s financial status and can sense the stress brought on by financial struggles. The high stress levels on children since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, with the increase in technological use, are imposing changes on the developmental and emotional growth caused by the shift in routines, prior to the pandemic, to a stay-at-home routine.

Impact of the Virus on Child’s Development

Session D: West Campus West Building W114

Children’s developmental phases have been construed over the last year by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. The early years in children’s development are very important because every action affects their brain and stimulates a reaction for the rest of their lives. The sudden change in children’s daily lives affects their understanding of how a normal day should be. Children are developing anxiety disorders which has led to a spike in childhood obesity because of the lack of structure in the child’s day. Children are trying to grasp an understanding of the virus in correlation to the family’s financial status and can sense the stress brought on by financial struggles. The high stress levels on children since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, with the increase in technological use, are imposing changes on the developmental and emotional growth caused by the shift in routines, prior to the pandemic, to a stay-at-home routine.
