During the pandemic, are the little kids all right?

During the pandemic, people are talking a lot about children.
They're talking about the older kids who've been robbed of proms and graduations, of levity and closure and in some cases plans for their futures. There's been plenty of talk about kids missing out on school, the ways in which they may fall behind, the challenges of remote learning ahead. Frustrated parents have repeatedly lamented the hardships of working at home with kids – scrambling for time, desperate for space, leaning heavily on screens they've long tried to limit.
