Chandra Gosh: Development Experts Explain

Chandra Ghosh, childhood trauma expert and associate director of the Child Trauma Research Program, at San Francisco, has explained that in the video, the child was looking very depressed. We cannot say anything until the information about the parent-child relationship. How secure is the bond between parents and children? You never know that a child who can not speak; he/she can express emotions through actions and eyes. So, understanding non-verbal communication is just in the case of infants or small children. 

Chandra added that parents can understand and feel the emotions of kids by their actions. For example, if your kid pushes you, he wants to be with you, and he wants you to pamper him. Imagine how bad it is when you get sudden separation at the same time you have to be very strong from outside. From, inside, you are worried about your kid, but you have to explain and understand a lot of things to get your child back with you.
