Virtual schools can be detrimental to children’s and parents mental health, Study

According to research from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Virtual education can pose a threat to the mental health and well-being of children and parents.

As per a CNN report, a new CDC study found that parents whose children received virtual and in-person education identified 11 out of 17 threats to their children’s and parents’ health.

The researchers looked at the responses from the October and November 2020 surveys of their 5 to 12-year-old children, including 1,290 parents.

About 25% of parents of whom children get virtual education had poor mental and emotional health than their children, while 16% of parents whose children received in-person education had better mental health.

Parents also say that their children were less physically active, spend less time outside the home and with friends. Emotional stress was reported in 54% of parents whose children received virtual education, compared to 38% of parents whose children received in-person education.

The father of virtually educated children reported employment concerns, child health challenges, pitch care and conflict at work, and difficulty sleeping.

According to researchers, children who are not receiving a physical education may have an increased risk of adverse mental, emotional or physical health consequences for their parents, and it may take time for them to cope with the effects of the global epidemic.
