Seriously there is hardly anything positive about Coronavirus or COVID-19, as the world calls it. About a million infected and thousands dead and the whole world fighting against it, trying to find a remedy or a cure. And then there are those news and rumours, true or false, spreading about the disease. And that is the sad truth about any news or stories around the world. False or true, the social media has always played a medium of spreading them all and the sadder part is that many tend to believe it. And when the world needs real news stories in times, it is indeed sad and unreal that the social media should be filled with so many unverified news stories. However, not to be negative, here is a positive side of the Coronavirus.
For long, as per Psychologists, there’s been a need for parents and children to spend a time together, a family time. The Parent-Child Relationship is one that nurtures the physical, emotional and social development of the child. It is a unique bond that every child and parent will can enjoy and nurture. This relationship lays the foundation for the child’s personality, life choices and overall behaviour. It can also affect the strength of their social, physical, mental and emotional health. And considering all these, there is a need for parents and children to be together and this virus has given them that time.
Yes.. Some might find it offensive but the truth be told; there is a need for parents and children to spend some time together, understand and know each other in these times. In a world where there is a rising need for hostels and boardings, it only shows that parents are willing to sent away their children to such places and spent more time alone, without any disturbances, if that includes their children. And as sad as that might be, it is a universal fact in the current world. Hence, what the time this Coronavirus has given to us human beings is for families to be together, spent that quality time and get to know each other better. The virus is indeed worrisome and that a large part of India has been infected with it except for North East region. But having said that, with the government of various states declaring closure of schools and educational institutions, it has only given families the time to spend a good quality time together. And amidst all that, here is hoping and wishing that everyone is safe from the virus.
