Supporting your child during exam time

As we start to move towards exam season, Young Minds have launched advice for parents about supporting their children.

Tips include:

    • 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
