At the outset, we appreciate the respondent’s diligence in going through our paper and earnest critique to enhance the study's quality. The critique was primarily focused on a tool utilized in the study, namely the Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ). This included the failure to report the psychometric properties of SDQ, and suggestion to estimate effect size for findings on SDQ. Our response is presented under these headings.
