The pandemic of Corona Virus Disease-2019 (COVID-19) has affected almost all sections of the community and compelled them to bring about alterations in their daily routine. Moreover, owing to the available epidemiological trends which suggest that most of the affected nations have reported a rapid upsurge in their caseload, the national leaders have been forced to implement restrictions. However, the good thing about these restrictions is that they have brought down both parents and children in the home for a longer period of time. In other words, the outbreak has given time for the parents to use it constructively for their benefit and also enjoy their stay at home. In conclusion, the COVID-19 pandemic has indirectly created multiple opportunities, wherein parents can understand their children better and utilize the available time for creating awareness about the disease and inculcation of healthy habits among their children, which can significantly reduce the risk of disease transmission.
