Supporting Your Child During Exam Time (Young Minds)
As we start to move towards exam season, Young Minds have launched advice for parents about supporting their children.
Encourage your child to take revision breaks and find a balance between studying and doing things they find enjoyable and relaxing.
Make sure they are eating and drinking at regular intervals.
Reassure them – reinforce that you are and will be proud of them no matter what happens.
Remain positive and hopeful!
Let them know their feelings are valid and normal, but also offer support and solutions where possible.
Anxiety is often worst at night and this means it is useful to encourage good bedtime routine

Lucy Howson and Grace King for having an excellent attitude to work.
