When thinking about how to rebound into a new normal, parents are worried about negative long-term effects on children from isolation.

One child psychologist suggests checking in with them and ask if there's anything they're worried about.

Doctor Laura Anthony says look for anxiety or sadness that gets so bad that your kids are no longer functioning normally, that's when it's time to get help.

She says despite the troubling times the children may go through there is hope.

"If you want to try to look at the brighter side, I don't think we're going to have a whole generation of kids who are permanently damaged," said Dr. Anthony. "What I think we're going to have is a whole generation of kids who are really resilient."
