Its almost that time of year again, exams and final tests for our kids.
If it’s exam time in your family it probably means…
Has taking a “study break” come to mean checking out social media, celebrity blogs and every other distracting website and app you can imagine? Does a study break in your house seem to morph from a short reprieve from the books into a long, unplanned detour into the black hole of the virtual world? Does “study break” turn into a euphemism for procrastinating and distractions?
We know how hard it is to help your kids keep on track during this stressful time, so we have some great tips to pass on to them, to help them make the most of their study time:
Exam time can reveal how our kids deal with stress, and as we all know stress can either be motivating or debilitating. Making sure our children understand how to deal with it and how to manage their workload is a crucial skill that they will need in their adult lives.
Help them to succeed by getting them to understand that with all the learning they are doing, they need their study breaks to be ‘down time’ where their brains can rest and they can process all they have taken in, and not another opportunity for taking in information which is what happens when they head into their digital devices and consume content.
GOOD LUCK, parents – may the force be with you!
