The Easter break is almost here which means thousands of teenagers will have their heads down revising. Whether your children are studying for their GCSE or A-level exams here is how you can help them.
The run-up to exams can be a nerve-racking time for students but family members can help even if they don’t know the subject.
Future Mag has provided some top tips to help parents with their revising teen.
1. Ask questions
First thing to do is ask your child how you can help. Start the conversation by asking ‘Have you planned your revision, do you need any help with your plan? How can I support you?’
2. Provide a study space
Young people need the right environment to work in at home, such as a quiet space with a tidy desk.
3. Comfort them
There’s a lot of pressure on students so make sure they can rely on you for comforting advice and support.
4. Make sure they take breaks
Parents and carers should always have high expectations of their children, but they should also be aware of their anxieties and their need for regular breaks.
