Half of parents struggle to cope with impact of lockdown on children’s behaviour

By August 19, 2020National News

More than a million parents believe their child could benefit from professional help in the wake of the coronavirus lockdown, according to a new survey by Barnardo’s.

The poll of more than 1,000 British parents conducted by YouGov for the leading children’s charity also reveals that more than half (58%) of parents have found it difficult to cope with their children during lockdown at some point.

Almost a third (30%) report their children are often frustrated, with more than a quarter (28%) saying they get angry more easily and more than one-in-five (21%) saying they are sleeping less at times since lockdown began in March.

Amid the coronavirus pandemic, Barnardo’s anticipates that children and young people who were not previously vulnerable are now struggling because of the effects of Covid-19 and the lockdown.
