If Your Introverted Child Is Struggling With Remote Learning, Take This First Step


Just because remote learning is widely in use across the US, that doesn't mean it's easy for children--or their parents. HuffPost reports introverted students face even more challenges with remote learning besides nabbing a strong wifi signal. If you find your child is holding back in class--or avoiding classes altogether--experts say it's best to start by gently asking them what's going on. Perhaps they're worried about what their peers think of the home, or by how they look on camera, or that they can't get to grips with the software. Remind them that backgrounds can be tidied, hair can be cut, seating and lighting can be improved, and software tutorials can be worked through. Whatever the problem, work to reassure the child that such feelings are normal and that there are solutions to every problem.

  • Is Your Child Regressing? Here's When To Worry, And When To Let It Go

    When children are struggling, they often regress. That means they revert to a level of behavior appropriate for a younger child. For example, a school-age child might start having toddler-esque tantrums again. Or a tween who becomes suddenly clingy. According to HuffPost, psychologists say regression is an entirely normal reaction to the constantly changing conditions brought about by the pandemic. Generally, it's nothing to worry about. However, if the behavior is interfering with the child's ability to function, then parents should get involved. For example, if a child who used to be able to feed themselves now needs to be spoon-fed, and every meal is turning into a battle, that’s different. Have a pediatrician rule out any medical conditions. After that, reach out to your child's school to meet with its educational psychologist or counselor.

  • 'It makes me feel lonely': Remote learning isolates US schoolchildren

    Parents in the suburbs of the US capital say prolonged school closures aiming to curb the Covid-19 pandemic are taking a toll on school children's mental health and hampering their ability to learn and grow. Deanna Caputo, a psychologist and mother of two in Arlington, Virginia, says she started noticing symptoms of depression in her son after eight weeks of remote learning. In nearby Falls Church, Daniel Mooney sits all day in his basement as he follows classes on his computer. "It makes me feel lonely," he says, days before his ninth birthday.

  • Les éthylotests disponibles dans les commerces qui vendent de l'alcool dès juillet

    Jusque-là, seules les discothèques et les épiceries de nuit devaient proposer des éthylotests à leurs clients. Cette obligation va bientôt s'étendre à tous les magasins qui vendent de l'alcool. Mais Julien Chivé, caviste bordelais, n'est pas vraiment convaincu. "Je trouve que ça ne sert pas à grand-chose. Les gens savent bien qu'après deux verres, il faut s'arrêter si on veut reprendre la voiture. Et les clients rencontrés ce jeudi matin ne voient pas non plus l'intérêt d'en acheter. "Ca me semble absurde", lance l'un d'eux. "De toute façon, après deux verres, on sera positif, donc c'est à chacun de se gérer", explique un autre.Dans l'épicerie de Virgine Matheron, à Talence (Gironde), il est difficile de trouver une place pour les éthylotests. La gérante doit enlever des produits et envisage surtout des coûts supplémentaires. En effet, dans le supermarché Carrefour City, qui en commercialise depuis un an, ces produits ne sont pas très populaires. "On en a vendu trois en un an", confie le gérant. Près de 50 000 commerçants devraient proposer des éthylotests à partir du 1er juillet, sous peine d'une amende de 675 euros.
