Tips for parents to handle exam stressBoard examinations each year cause a severe amount of stress and discomfort among students, teachers, and even parents. All the parties involved have only one desire that is to perform optimally. This is a reasonable demand but somewhere this demand can cause severe examination anxiety among students. Sometimes, the pressure is so intense that students can resort to committing suicide. With the covid pandemic, the challenge has intensified. There have been several delays and children are struggling to keep up because of online classes, uncertainty regarding examination dates, etc. This article is focused on equipping both parents and children to identify the best ways to cope with the stress of board examinations.
Here are some tips for parents
Be emotionally available: You can help your child manage the stress by helping them set realistic expectations and by being emotionally available for your child. Your job is to aid them in managing their fears. Sit with your child, talk to them, ask them how they feel about their upcoming examinations, be open, and encourage them to discuss their fears. Be empathetic and listen to your child whenever they seem overwhelmed.
Set healthy boundaries: You can give your children the autonomy and power to design their own schedules and work on their own timings. Metaphorically speaking, you can walk with them rather than driving them to the destination. This can be done by limiting your talks regarding the exam, keeping it as normal as possible, giving them space, and having regular check-ins to assess their progress.
Praise efforts, not their intelligence: Your child’s grades are based on their efforts and understanding of a subject. You must appreciate them for the efforts that they are putting in and refrain from making remarks or harsh comments on their level of intelligence. Provide them with positive affirmations such as ‘You can do it’, ‘You’re making great progress’, ‘You can reach your goals’, etc.
Do not compare: Each child is special and unique in his or her own way. Whether your child excels or doesn’t, your role is to make them feel accepted, supported, and loved despite the outcome. Do not compare your child to your relative’s child or your neighbor’s child as it might make them feel that they will only be loved with a 95% or above.
