The measures taken in many areas such as health, the economy, and social areas within the scope of the COVID-19 pandemic
have also been effective in the field of education, and have caused billions of students around the world to switch from formal
education to the digital education system. Children at pre-school and primary school education levels have been greatly affected by
this process because their cognitive, social, physical, and language development is interrupted, they cannot continue their dialogues
with their peers, and especially because they move away from the daily routine they are accustomed to. In older children and
adolescents, there is a decrease in social relations due to compulsory isolation, feelings of loneliness, not being able to go to school,
weakening of friendships, anxiety caused by uncertainty, unhappiness, decreased interest in lessons, and obsession with cleanliness.
The pandemic has developed common emotional and behavioral reactions at the global level in parallel with the measures taken
and the nature of the new regulations. Behavior and adaptation problems in children can be prevented or eliminated by developing
crisis-focused psychosocial support services.
