Here are some of the tips for parents to help cope teens with exam stress;

Encourage them to meditate

Exam stress can cause anxiety, anger, and frustration. But mindful meditation can help teens manage the situation effectively. It helps reduce cortisol levels resulting in proper brain functioning, hence better preparation for exams.

Load their meals with omega 3

I recommend boosting your child’s memory by giving them omega 3 fats from fish. For supplements, choose the absorbable type meant for teens and youngsters for quicker results. This way they can recall what they learnt in class for better results.

Take them through effective revision tricks

Parents can help their children develop exam revision timetables or get mock past papers to familiarize with what is to come in the main exam. They can also guide them on making attractive notes or take the child through a quick quiz from the selected topics assigned to read. This way, the child will feel more confident and ready for the exam.

The work of a family doctor includes a wide range of clinical diversity, which requires extensive knowledge and erudition from a specialist. However, I believe that the most important thing for a family doctor is to be human because the cooperation and understanding between the doctor and the patient are crucial in ensuring successful health care. On my days off, I love being in nature. Since childhood, I have been passionate about playing chess and tennis. Whenever I have time off, I enjoy traveling around the world.
