Exams stress and kids

Exams are about to begin and the stress to score high is showing up on the faces of kids and parents. However, stress can result in bad performance and grades. Parents need to take some steps so that their kids memorize their lessons and perform without much stress.
Drinking water during the studies helps in memory retention. Therefore, ask your kid to drink water frequently in between.

Breathing exercises helps to shed stress from the mind. Teach your kids some easy breathing exercise so that he or she can feel stress free and fresh.

Short breaks between the studies to eat or to play help kids to refresh themselves.

Longer duration of studies exhausts the child and reduces retention of memory.

Encourage your child to think positive. Positive atmosphere at home is helpful in keeping the kid calm and confident.

Sound sleep is also necessary for children. Irregular routine of sleeping makes the child weary and irritated.

Last but not the least; formulate an agreeable time table for studies and other activities so that kids can enjoy and also prepare for exams without feeling the burden.
