Have our Young People Forgotten how to Socialise?

There is no denying that we live in a digital age, and this already posed questions regarding child interaction with peers and whether the art of true conversation has been lost. However, with 12 months of lockdowns, the question of whether young people have forgotten how to socialise becomes even more pressing. We explore the issue of social interaction post-pandemic.

There is no denying that life has changed by astronomical proportions over the past 12 months. One of the big changes has been the social distancing and lockdown requirements, which means that many people have not been able to see their loved ones for quite some time.

For University students, student life has been tough. They have not been able to enjoy all of the social benefits that come with University life and for children and teenagers, not being able to see their friends will have felt strange and many are worried that it could hinder their development.

In addition to all this, we cannot overlook the mental health issues that plague our society at the moment. Social anxiety about meeting up with people once lockdown is over is very real, and many people worry about how they will act in social situations.
