The goal of this study was to review the content posted in available local Jordanian Facebook groups to explore the perceptions of parents regarding the challenges of distance learning faced by their children during the coronavirus outbreak in Jordan. The Facebook search engine was used to identify local Facebook groups. The search keywords included distance learning, parents, and Jordan. Several faculty professors reviewed the posts and discussion flow on distance learning posted in Facebook groups from March 15th to April 25th 2020.

Children and adolescents who experience a prolonged state of physical isolation during COVID-19 may look
for alternative, attractive or unconventional forms of socialization, available in the web
world. This may expose them to the risks of unsupervised cyberspace exploration beyond the
open web, which may lead them to areas that are usually not available to visitors. They may pass
the gates of the “open” and “deep web” sections and enter into the dangerous “dark web” zones,
which predominantly host unethical and criminal activities. In those shadowy corners of the
worldwide web, there exist dangers ranging from identity theft and drug trade to suicide chat-rooms
and child pornography.
This commentary, authored by EPA-UNEPSA members of the working group on social pediatrics,
briefly discusses the features of the dark web and its implications for children and adolescents. The aim is to raise awareness of pediatricians and families on the growing risk of child exploitation
through the web, at a time when vulnerable young people face home lockdowns with potential
abusers intruding on their privacy.

While COVID-19 outbreak has had adverse psychological effects in children with special needs, the mental state and burden on their caregivers during this pandemic has yet to be reported. The COVID-19 outbreak has had a significant impact on caregiver strain compared to perceived strain before the pandemic. Prevalence of depressive symptoms is high among caregivers of children with special needs. Negative perception of homecare therapy is associated with higher perceived strain and poor mental health. Not using tele-rehabilitation and perception of it being a poor medium for rehabilitation pose greater mental health risks.
UNICEF Innocenti's Children and COVID-19 Library is a database collecting research from around the world on COVID-19 and its impacts on children and adolescents.
