Covid-19 Kids: Psychologically Damaged?

Covid-19 Kids: Psychologically Damaged?


The sheer idiocy of adults imposing social distancing and mandatory mask wearing on children (not to mention the even more extreme measures shown in the above video) beggars belief. Arguably, this is a form of child abuse for which “society” will pay a price for years to come.  

Or is this an exaggeration?  Are children too resilient to suffer long-term effects from the “crisis” measures?

    And right on cue, Joe Biden promises to mandate mask wearing for all, no age limit up or down, and that outdoors for several months (to save 40,000 lives!)

    Everyone seems to have forgotten the assurance given by Sr Chris Whitty that the majority of people who become infected, will recover: Prof Witty said: “Even in the most vulnerable, oldest groups, in a very stressed health service – which Hubei was at the point when most of the data came out – the great majority of people who caught this virus – and not everybody will – survived it. The great majority, over 90 per cent. (5 March, 2020)

    So, I’m still trying to work out what the heck is all the fuss about?

      I hear that it will now be a criminal offence in Scotland not to wear a mask at church. I hope it’s not true – a friend told me this afternoon but I haven’t heard anything formally announced at Mass.

    The following message has come into my inbox this morning from the Keep Britain Free group…

    Dear Supporter,

    For five months, millions of children have been deprived of an education. Now, the return to school in September is being marred by ridiculous propositions of blended learning, social distancing and the mandatory wearing of PPE.

    These regulations would be detrimental not only to the mental health of our children, but to their capacity to learn.

    Today, A Level results day has shone a spotlight on the incompetence of the Government’s education strategy and the harmful impact lockdown is having on the future prospects of children. The proposed measures will do nothing but put the education of yet more generations in jeopardy.

    Gavin Williamson must be held to blame for a disastrous sequence of poor decisions, U-turns and delays. Can we really rely on him to go head-to-head with the calculating unions, some of which have huge and ridiculous checklists of demands as they seek to politicise the education of the UK’s children?

    The Government’s response has been nothing but a farce. That’s why today, Keep Britain Free is launching its Back to Schools campaign.

    Despite the risk of transmission between children in schools being proven to be statistically low, when children return to their classrooms in September, they may be required to do so on a rotational basis, whilst social distancing and wearing restrictive personal protective equipment.

    After already going through a traumatic year which as shown by many studies, is certain to have a long-lasting negative impact on their mental health, the thing children need most is a return to normality. They need to return to an environment where they feel safe, comfortable and supported, rather than being forced into a nightmarish ‘new normal’.

    Our Back to Schools campaign has launched today on social media – if you believe in this cause and want to rise up against the ruin of future generations, please show your support by sharing our social media posts on your own channels.

    We have also pulled together a template letter which you can send to your local MP to vocalise the importance of returning to school with no masks, bubbles or other unnecessary nonsense. You can access this here.

    With over 10,000 people now supporting the Keep Britain Free movement and with thousands more being supportive of a normal return to school next month, together our voice is strong. The children of the UK have been through many months of turmoil – we must do what we can to help them get their lives back on track.

    Together, we will Keep Britain Free.

      Over here it is the powerful (and far-left) Teacher’s Union that is controlling the re-opening strategy:

    I think the younger generation are going to have a lot to suffer – most have no spiritual guidance or the Faith as a point of reference, many are going to struggle financially and will probably never own their own homes, many will fall prey to the problems of drugs, alcohol, pornography, STD’s, cultural marxism, unfounded fears about the environment (thanks to Greta & Co). Many will develop an over dependence on technology (look how many kids go into meltdown when they are separated from their smartphones for any length of time), many will fail to secure employment, and many will develop phobias and mental health issues in the aftermath of covid-19. If you could give me a pill that would make me 18 again tomorrow, I promise you, I wouldn’t take it for all the tea in China. I certainly don’t envy the young. I feel very sorry for the youth of today, very sorry. They have so many pressures on them that we just didn’t have, and I don’t think many have a childhood any more, full of innocence and joys which will bring lasting good memories.

      Westminster Fly,

      I take it you mean “all the tea in Tesco…” We don’t mention “China” here, if we can possibly avoid doing so 😀

      Agree, of course, with everything you say. I pity the young today, not envy them. Except maybe their hair colour … 😀

        LOL! Have you seen the size of my Tesco? Their tea stock wouldn’t last me out the month. As for the hair colour – agreed. We have our cases of blue/green/pink straggly haired teenagers. I usually associate them with the vegan/animal rights/environmental brigade.

    Can you imagine the Psychological Damage to kids when they make the vaccine mandatory. If not technically mandatory, the kids will be refused entry to Schools if they refuse it, because they are seen as a ‘risk’ to other Children and staff.

      I’m no scientist, but everything I’ve read about vaccines tells me they take many years to make.

      Our only hope to get out of these draconian punishments is for the Pope and Bishops to consecrate Russia, in the manner prescribed by Our Lady.

        Full obedience to Our Lady Of Fatima’s request is the only insurance against Communism. I believe what we are witnessing now is a Totalitarian Communist style takeover of by the New World Order.

        Absolutely – we are certainly witnessing a serious attempt to impose the New World Order, to “reset” the world in the image of Communism, led, I have no doubt, by Communist China.

        Today – Feast of the Assumption of Our Lady into Heaven, is a very appropriate day on which to pray for the intention of the Consecration of Russia, as a matter of urgency.

        Happy Feast!

      That is one very sobering report on LSN. It’s odd that doctors have not suggested punishing the elderly who refuse the flu vaccine every year – what makes this virus so different (apart from the hype).

    I am so lucky to grow up when I did. I completed secondary education in 2008. I benefited from lower university tuition fees, and received the education maintenance allowance. Whereas this cohort of youth did not get EMA, must pay £9,000+ per annum tuition fees (rip-off), have been robbed of the reward of their hard work and talent due to the exam boards’ arbitrary algorithm, and face an abysmal job market. So yes, rubbish being an 18 year old today.

      Miles Immaculatae,

      If it’s rubbish being an 18 year old, think what it must be like to be one of those toddlers in a perspex box, or a pupil at a school in England where face masks are now a mandatory part of the school uniform.

      When this entire enterprise is exposed for what it is – an exercise in totalitarian control – future generations, especially historians, will marvel at our collective stupidity.

      For, the majority of people I saw today wearing face masks, the majority also wore them beneath the nose, thus rendering them useless, and touched them to pull them up and down, again, rendering them useless.

      Crazy people. .

    What I know about child psychology wouldn’t fill a thimble, but it seems to me that a child could be resilient only if he is in the steady company of adults who are sane, who have the Faith and teach and practice it; who severely limit their exposure to technology and the tyrannical fear agenda of Big Tech and the “Legacy Media” through its various outlets; Satanic music; and social engineering agendas.

    If a child is not given that kind of protection, then the result will be the vagrants and thugs we see rioting and protesting, looting and burning, in the streets of numerous American cities and cities around the world. In other words, they will become easily manipulated by evildoers.

    I should clarify that “sane” means rejecting the Virus From Outer Space measures. Or to make a slogan out of it:

    Be sane, not “safe.”

      Sane not Safe should be the slogan but it won’t be. The fear is now too deep rooted in people, it’s really something to behold. I still get people doing huge body swerves to avoid coming near me, it’s incredible.

    RCA Victor,

    Sanity has gone out of the window. I was cutting through a store this morning, and saw a notice as I was passing the footwear department, Customers were not allowed to try on footwear, in keeping with the Covid restrictions. I decided to ask a question. I approached the masked sales girl at the nearest counter and said I’d read the notice, but was it permitted to buy shoes/footwear, take them home to try, and if necessary, return them? Answer (I assume thinking she had clinched a sale) an enthusiastic “yes”. I pointed out that this was ludicrous and she nodded.

    Life is full of the same sort of nonsense these days. Nobody else seems to think anything of it.

      That leads me to propose a variation of the old saying:

      “If the shoe fits in the store, you’ve broken the law!”

        RCA Victor,

        LOL! That’s a great variation on “if the shoe fits, wear it!” LOL!

    That video should be a real wake-up call but it won’t be. Most people are just so terrified and living in such fear of this virus, that nothing will change that, unless the government says they got it all wrong – that’s never going to happen. The thing is, the government in England said face masks were not recommended in school settings, so those schools that have made them mandatory are in the wrong. I hope parents refuse to comply but they won’t, because, as I say, fear has a tight grip of people now.

    August 14, 2020 at 6:07 pm

    What a clear cut case of child abuse, seeing those children being so controlled, to stand in circles, to sit in perspex boxes, whatever.

    How are kids at school expected to make friends? Are they ever going to have fun, play and skip around or will they have to “socially distance” (i.e. ANTI-socially distance) forever now? I can’t see this coming to and end, and these children’s lives are being ruined – even if they (and their brainless parents) don’t realise it.

    There’s just no end to the misery and long lasting psychological damage this will do to both children and adults. These politicians and so called scientific experts, have an awful lot to answer for.

    Today is the Feast of the Assumption of Our Lady into Heaven. I had planned to post the usual devotional thread to mark the day, so I apologise for my tardiness.

    Since Our Lady is a loving mother, we can be confident in seeking her intercession for all the children who are being affected by the current – utterly ridiculous and scandalous – restrictions on our basic freedoms and way of life; that, somehow, the fear being instilled in them to think of their environment and everyone around them as dangerous and disease-ridden will not damage them for life.

    A Happy Feast day everyone.

    Please SIGN and SHARE this new petition which asks governments and business leaders to pledge to respect the rights of those who refuse a COVID-19 vaccine, and not seek to punish them for doing so.

    The petition should have mentioned to ask the Bishops of England and Wales to respect the rights of those who refuse a COVID-19 vaccine as well!

    The treatment of today’s children; gender confusion , too-early sexualisation and marxist indoctrination, and now this, plus compulsory vaccination, is evil beyond words. These children will surely grow up VERY damaged.
