在远程学习的几个星期里,由以下因素带来的挑战 Covid 19 对许多人来说,这已经是压倒性的,并且可能对你的心理健康产生了影响。这种不确定性使我们感到一系列的情绪,如恐惧、悲伤和沮丧。有些日子比其他日子好,有时这些感觉来了又走。然而,有时我们的忧虑和感觉越来越大,对我们来说,靠自己的力量应对这些问题变得非常困难。

大多数时候,成年人更善于表达和处理任何酝酿中的想法和情绪,但并不是所有的孩子都能用语言或通过爆发和发脾气来外化他们的情绪。你的孩子没有谈论这段不确定的时间,并不意味着他们没有想到这一切会持续多久,或者他们什么时候能再次见到他们的朋友和家人!你如何判断你的孩子是否有情绪?那么,如果你的孩子不再公开表达自己,你如何判断他们是否焦虑或担心?

As parents, you are the experts when it comes to your child, so listen to your instincts when you see subtle signs or changes in your child’s behaviour. For example, your child might start to avoid activities that they usually enjoy or they might have trouble concentrating and sleeping. Your child may also complain about physical symptoms such as, headaches, tummy aches and may present as being tired all the time (similar to the unexplained exhaustion the grown-ups are feeling at this time). If your child is a teen, they might start becoming more defiant, appear less motivated, exhibit aggressive behaviors, or stay in their room for longer periods (even more than usual).

帮助您孩子的心理健康的策略

Here are some practical strategies you may wish to use to help you look after your child’s mental health and wellbeing during this time. It’s important to be consistent when using these strategies in order to reduce the risk of mental ill health during this time and even once schools reopen.

管理你自己的焦虑

作为父母,在可能的情况下,通过寻找时间来放松和充电来管理自己的焦虑。你只需要15分钟专注于深呼吸或拉伸,如果你有更多的时间,做一个在线瑜伽课程或腾出时间来祈祷。

谈一谈他们的感受

Get your children talking about what they are feeling at this time. You can lead the conversation by sharing what you might be worried about as a parent (nothing too extreme as you don’t want your child to worry even more). You can explain that it’s okay to be worried, feel anxious and tired, but there are ways to minimise this by doing something they enjoy or by spending quality time together by watching a movie, playing a board game together, or talking about what you’re most looking forward to once this is all over. https://www.childhood.org.au/app/uploads/2020/04/Things-to-Look-Forward-to-Resource.pdf.

准备好回答 "如果"。

If you are hearing a lot of “what if” thoughts from your child. For instance, “what if one of us get sick? Instead of saying “don’t worry” or “it will be fine”, focus on the facts and remind them that the social distancing rules, wearing masks and frequent hand washing will prevent them from getting sick. If they continue to say “what if”, talk through a ‘what if’ plan with them to reassure them. If you have tried everything and your child is still worried spend some time doing a positive and calming activity together.

与家人和朋友联系

为自己和孩子安排时间,通过视频通话与朋友和家人见面。这将为你和你的家人提供一个机会,一起谈论你的经历和情绪。

限制屏幕时间

即使现在很困难,也要尝试限制屏幕时间,观看当地或国际新闻,并鼓励通过有信誉的资源阅读最新信息。
