Itogon Mayor Victorio Palangdan said Filipinos must ensure that homes are “safe and loving” amid the coronavirus disease (COVID19) pandemic.
The Benguet politiko made the remark in his National Children’s Month message.
“We must commit to create a safe and loving environment for our children amidst these challenging times,” Palangdan said.
He explained that “children suffer as much as adults.”
“The distance learning arrangement is taking a toll on their mental health induced by pressure on school work and other constraints brought by COVID19,” Palangdan said.
