Why Mental health of kids is also important?

Blogchatter is the first community I started my association with as a blogger, and it has always stayed close to my heart. The team at the Blogchatter has become good friends to me over the course of time. And I always try to participate in at least a few of their campaigns yearly. This year the #CauseaCharter topics have excited me as most of the topics given there are close to my heart.

  • Mental Health talk
  • Environmental talk
  • Gender talk

As a parent, I had seen the deterioration in the Mental Health of kids during this lockdown. It has added a lot of additional stress and anxiety in children, which has not been discussed in detail yet. As a parent of a single child, I faced another set of issues due to the non-availability of peers or the extended family to support us through this lockdown, which affected my kid positively and negatively. No wonder our ancestors used to say the following:

The Child can’t be reared alone, but it takes a village to raise the child.


In the lockdown, when we are all isolated from others, it’s very difficult to provide the required social interactions for the kids, which is very vital for their growth and well-being. So, as my child was missing his peers and extended family, we had to work doubly hard to provide that much-needed comfort.

Only our slow parenting techniques, like Montessori Parenting, came to my rescue. I was lucky enough to have access to experienced Montessorians who have also researched Child Psychology. So through my mentors and guides, I overcame a few of the problems we faced. So, that’s the reason why I decided to talk about Mental Health for kids this year. As we all know, the “Happy Kids of today will become Happy Citizens of tomorrow”

Also, when I started my child psychology training late last year, I understood that most children do not have enough life skills to manage themselves in the future. As they are getting overburdened with the pressure of studies and extra circular activities. So, that’s another reason for us to start our comic series, my child’s blog (Shravmusings), to highlight the importance of these life skills in a story-like manner to kids.


The moment someone says that we are going to talk about Mental Health for Kids, most of us immediately conclude that we might be talking about Autism, ADHD, Down’s syndrome, or something like that. I am not a trained psychologist to talk about any of those big problems. So I am not qualified or experienced enough to talk about that kind of problem. All I am going to discuss in this series are the day-to-day problems that we as parents face while raising our kids. Child Psychologists are also discussing these problems online, but many of us are unaware. So, I am planning to provide my experience and a parent’s angle on these issues.

It can be as simple as their fears, anxiety issues, aggressive behavior, or talking back to us. Or it can be a little more complicated to handle the bullying at school or outside, facing peer pressures, etc.

Please share any issues or the triumphs you had while raising your kids, as most of those issues I mentioned earlier would have been faced by many of us in the comments below.
