Many families and couples are facing increased tension during this period of home-confinement. Some manifestations of this stress can be:

  • Parents may become more impatient with children. The burden of working at home and childcare are challenging people's physical and emotional energies;
  • Children's and teens' isolation from peers make them restless or more dependent on screen-time, esp. video games;
  • Isolated adults may feel the pain of loneliness;

  • Additionally, couple conflict and parent-child conflict can escalate;

Furthermore, concerns about finances, the uncertain future, worries about one’s own and one’s family’s health, fears about elder or immuno-compromised relatives and the loss of loved ones invariably can add to emotional difficulties.
