Helping your Child Manage Stress During Exam Period

It’s well known that at the peak of the exam period, children will be feeling overwhelmed, restless and struggling with their work. There’s a lot of support you can provide to your child, however, that will guide them through their studies and guide them through their exams. Read on to find some top tips to help children manage stress from this private school in Surrey.

Identify signs of stress early

The first year your child is handling exams will be when you should start to become aware of your child’s movements and how they’re dealing with things at school. Is their appetite changing? Are they becoming more reserved at home? How are they managing in all of their other subjects? These are ways to look at your child’s work and see where you can ease the pressure, making them feel calmer and more collected.

Keep an eye on your child’s sleeping pattern

Another key sign of stress is the amount of sleep your child gets on a regular basis. Are they heading to bed on time? Or do you hear them still awake even when everyone’s gone to bed? If you’re finding it much more difficult to regulate your child’s sleeping pattern, look to do exercise on a daily basis, even if it’s just a short walk to relieve your child’s stress.

Offer to help with their revision planning

When you see your child reaching their limits, you should jump in to assist. There will be ways to manage their workload that you can help them with using timetables, allocated revision times and facilitating breaks and time to eat and drink. With their parents looking over them and offering support, children can feel reassured and more motivated with their work.


Make sure you provide your child with a reward after all their hard work is done, even if they feel they didn’t do well. It’s about the effort that counts, and they’ll feel much happier as a result.
