HIGH-RISE FLATS CAN AFFECT MENTAL HEALTH ESPECIALLY IN CHILDREN




Research on how human beings relate with the built environment shows a link between dwelling in high-rise flats with such behavioral problems in children like bedwetting, temper tantrums, hyperactivity, and hostility. In interdisciplinary exploration of literature on social sciences, psychology and  architecture researchers disclose findings worthy any loving parent’s attention.

High-rise dwelling has exposure to stressors that leads to stress and anxiety which in turn can cause or precipitate behavioral challenges in children. According to experts divorce, family relocation, or being picked on or punished at school are other stressors that can affect children.
