Some children lose basic skills under virus lockdown, report says

UK’s education watchdog Ofsted found some children forgot how to eat with a fork and knife while others regressed back into diapers as the schools were locked down due to the Covid-19 pandemic. In its reports based on its findings from visits to education and social care providers across England, Ofsted said the most affected by were those in their earliest years of education with working parents.

Humams are social animals. If they don't socialize they suffer. Arguments can be made that intentional isolation can be a form of abuse. Duh.

New headlines "Parents are totally screwing up the opportunity to educate their children".

If you had a special needs kid you would understand exactly how bad these shutdowns are, they are being denied the very essential help they need, both from an education stand point and social. Tell me, how does a mentally challenged child virtually go to school if they can’t type or press a power button on a computer ? The avg special needs family isn’t overflowing with money to buy computer software and other things that are needed and you are just screwed if u r a single parent household and have a job.

As someone whos from the UK and who worked at a youth group I have seen first hand the damage lockdown has done on children especially the youngest ones. They are less confident and struggle with basic skills. More importantly though is the kids with social disorders they literally are struggling to get on with their peers in all capacities. We have had to spend more time with them individually to help the reintegrate.

These lock downs will never go away unless the world stands up and fights back against them. They are designed to limit your freedoms and movements. Trust me when I say there will be covid 21, then covid 29 and so on.
