The aim of this paper is to examine the effects of economic crisis on children. The economic crisis as it is defined affects far more the lives of children of disadvantaged families and as the statistics show children have been severely affected by the economic crisis, more than any other segment of the population. The crisis has not just changed their well-being in material terms but has had negative psychological effects as well. Another serious consequence has been the effect that the crisis has had on child care and schools as many children experience sudden changes in their educational process. These changes are bi directional and affect the psychology of the children and the family as well. In order to deal with this problem affectively, special programmes need to be implemented that will address the key issues one by one and provide solutions.
