Due to increase in competition parents and children are all stressed and the anxiety levels have no boundaries some times. It is very important for parents to calm kids down and not level stress level at such a young age become so high. It does not have a good effect on their health mentally and physically and it is definitely not good in the long run.
Here we have put together a list of ways as to how children can cope with anxiety and stress while they wait for their results.
Waiting for exam results can trigger a lot of emotions such as - Happiness or excitement, disappointment, panic or anxiety, guilt, confusion or sadness, anger, fear.
- Stay Calm
- Look out for friends and family and people
who make you happy
- Stay positive
- And reward yourself for the hard work you have put in for so long instead of stressing about the result.
Our first top tip is that these are normal feelings and sensations. You are not odd or weird to experience these feelings, and they are very common. How you feel about the results you receive is typically related to expectations. These may be your own expectations or those of your parents, school or community. You may receive the exam results you were hoping for or they may not match your expectations. Either way, understand that it is normal and natural to experience these types of emotions.
If you receive results that are what you hoped for, then it’s time to celebrate but in case your result is not as expected, it is nothing to get disheartened about. Always remembers that you tried your best. You gave in your 100% and you scored the best you could.
You do not have to win the rat race. If your score is a certain something, It is time to see where you can apply and what courses you can opt for. Looking at the next thing to do and taking the next best step is the best way to deal with your emotions at such a point.
Another important tip to remember is that these are just one set of exam results and in no way represent your worth as a human being. There are a lot of tests life will put you through in the future and it is how you deal with them that count.
Sometimes in life you may have to choose a different path, career or a goal from what you have decided previously. But Life has its own way of taking a turn and you cannot really change your destiny and you may be disappointed for not being able to do what you want and for having to take a different route but in the long run you will eventually realize that it was for the best and you will be in a happy place.
The other thing to keep in mind is that you may feel like you do not have many options but when you actually look around carefully there are more options than you can imagine. People can make a career out of anything these days and it is amazing if you can find something that you enjoy doing and build your career around it.
If you are determined to succeed in life, then remember that no exam result can make you drift away from your goal. Hard work and determination will get you everywhere, so just motivate yourself to do better and get started. All the best!
