Yeah, yeah! We've all heard how board exams are a very crucial part of a student's life, and how it is a turning point in the student life. Agreed that board exams are important. Does it mean that kids must be burdened with high hopes and pressures? Nobody likes pressure. Would you like if there was constant pressure in your office for you to perform better? Certainly not! Then how fair is it to pressurise kids on their board exams? See, there is already too much pressure around your child. This pressure comes from friends, teachers and other relatives, and mostly from parents! The best you can do is support your child, and let them know they are not to fear exams. Here is how you can do it!
We've already established a fair point saying how it is wrong to put pressure on kids to score well in exams. We needn't even have to mention the horrors that could possibly happen if a child is pressurised too much and the child takes it to its head. Be the empathetic parent, and tell them board exam is not the end of life!
What your child needs the most is motivating words from you. Even a little motivation can send them a long way. You can constantly keep your child motivated by your words and the things you say to them. Use highly positive words while addressing them. Tell them how they are going to nail their exams. Boost their confidence!
Board exams mean too much studying. Your child might be lost into extensive studying and he might not even realise he needs a break. Be the caring parent and remind them that they need a break. Take them out to a movie or hang out with them. It will certainly help them relax themselves of the exam stress!
They would obviously be studying things that you would have studied as a student. You can revise a little and offer help while they are studying. Though they may not need it, they will certainly feel happy that you're trying to help them. This will also help you bond well!
Now that you've read these things you should be doing, we're sure you would apply it. After all, parents only want the best for their children!
