Adopting new parenting approaches is significant to improving the emotional well-being of children, especially in times of COVID-19 crisis as old ways of parenting will not work now. Accepting new parenting approaches is significant to improving the emotional well-being of children, especially in times of COVID-19 crisis as old ways of parenting will not work now, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said on Tuesday.

A new normal has emerged and our old ways of parenting will not work, Sisodia said during a webinar to mark Global Parents' Day.
Elaborating on how COVID-19 has caused undue stress on children, the deputy chief minister said, Considering our children have been home for an elongated period of time, we can see they have been going through some changes emotionally, mentally and physically. 

Children are more upset, they are irritable and there is no balance or equilibrium in their mindset. In such times, we as parents have to adopt novel approaches and ensure we create a loving and caring environment for our children. Parents need to adopt habits of mindfulness and be more understanding.
