Millions of students and teachers have returned to face-to-face education, which has been decelerated for a long time due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Psychologist, stating that during the epidemic period, there was a problem of intense attention and concentration in students, listed the ways to get rid of this problem, gave suggestions to parents.

Turkey Medicals member and hospital department, Psychologist in Antalya medical, said that the pandemic is a period when they are facing quite big changes for foreigner residence and Turkish students, “Our students and teachers in Turkey have left a few weeks behind in face-to-face education. During this time, as a Turkish psychologist, we had opportunities to observe children and maintain contact with our teachers. Looking at our many observations and findings, we saw that Turkish children have an intense attention and concentration problem. We have seen that many of our children have regressed to more backward position than they were in the previous situation,” he said.


Stating that there are various situations where children stay at home in Turkey due to the epidemic as a precaution that should be taken during the period when they should be social and active,  said, “Our children who stay at home have been constantly in front of the screen with online education and this has caused them to lack attention rather than lesson efficiency. Of course, this situation cannot be attributed only to online education. This situation is also due to parental attitudes. Families who are constantly in the Turkish house prefer to spend time giving their children phones and tablets. Our child, who could not do any social activities, could not go out, was at home for precaution, was constantly connected to the screen on everything as an activity,”he said.

Our Turkish Psychologist noted that with the opening of schools, students have a feeling that they have moved from a kind of virtual world to the real world, and offered the following suggestions to parents:

– As parents, we should put a limit on our tablet and phone habits with our child and strive to do different activities with our child.

– It would be a pretty good idea to get a hobby together.

– If our child is small, let’s make game hours with him.

– Let’s play concrete games, fantasize together with his toys, let’s enter his dream world.

– Let’s flex our muscles by doing manual work. They will improve his emotional development, intelligence level and motor development. Let’s make a consensus with our teachers and conduct this process jointly.

– Our teachers should inform our parents and involve them in this process. In this process, a lot of work falls on guidance services. Children should try to concentrate on school again with activities and studies that will be done with the co-ordination of parents and schools in Turkey.
