The mental health of children is more fragile and they react to stressful situations in different ways.

Minister for Education, Rosy Akbar says children may start to feel anxious and worried about the uncertainty that the upcoming weeks will hold.

Therefore, she has urged parents and guardians to help students keep up with their education and be engaged.

Akbar says as parents need to be supportive and check on their kids regularly to see how they are feeling.

She adds parents should take note of changes in the behaviour of the children, and address it in a supportive manner.

The Minister has also encouraged children to keep their spirits up during their extended school break and has asked parents to monitor how their children are doing and ensure that their mental health is taken care of.

She adds even adults can find staying at home or working from home to be a major adjustment to get used to therefore parents must be able to deal with it openly with their young ones before it has a chance to severely impact them.
