Preparing for an upcoming exam is not the only thing that is important to ensure the success of your child. There are various other factors that are in play which collectively decide how successful a child is during an examination. ‘Confidence’ is without any doubt, one of the most important determining features.
If a child is striving hard for an imminent exam, and is also constantly stressing out because of being under constant pressure from your end to succeed, the chances of him/her failing to put in the best efforts are extremely high. It is essential that parents are pillars of support instead of figures that are a cause of even more anxiety for a child.
Other than appreciating your children’s preparatory efforts, helping them in any way by assisting them in solving problems they are stuck on and finding supplementary resources for them to perfect their understanding of concepts is just as significant in enhancing their self-confidence.
Looking after the health of your child, appreciating the efforts he/she is putting in towards the preparation, and boosting their confidence cumulatively go a long way towards ensuring that your child walks into the examination hall feeling self-assured instead of doubting their own abilities.
Having confidence goes a long way in ensuring that your child does well in exams and does not doubt his/her abilities to perform more than adequately.
