Children’s wellbeing in focus as we emerge from the pandemic
Susan Rvachew recently published an article in the Globe and Mail on concerns surrounding child wellbeing and factors to consider as we emerge from the pandemic.
Long before the pandemic, there were concerns about children’s academic outcomes, mental health, and physical health. However, the sharp increase in screen time has renewed fears that excessive exposure to digital media will affect children’s wellbeing. As we consider child wellbeing in a post-pandemic future, Susan Rvachew explains that our focus now needs to be on “promoting a healthy lifestyle and family cohesion”, not limits.
