He adds that it is essential to closely monitor the social development and mental health of children.


“Children should be free to run around and interact freely with all their peers. We have to look very carefully at their social development and their mental health. There are also other aspects related to the health system.

He adds that school is not only for academic progress, but also for developing the character of children.
