Domestic isolation: how does a family get through quarantine?

WORLD: As a psychologist, do you get stomach ache when thinking about all the children who may even have to be isolated several times in the coming weeks?

Julia Asbrand: I do not consider a regular quarantine of two weeks in itself directly problematic, it is time-limited. But whether you can take it depends on the domestic situation: Do you have a garden, a sufficiently large apartment? Can parents take time for the child? And how old is the child anyway? Quarantine isn’t necessarily bad – the problem is with the circumstances.

WORLD: Primary school children in particular, who have to stay at home in groups, do not understand this injustice. They struggle with anger and incomprehension. How can you relieve them?
