PARENTS ARE HUMAN TOO

With the high stakes of student performance on tests these days, many parents are also feeling extremely anxious at test time. While it is OK for you to be anxious, if you are one of the parents experiencing this stress, please give yourself permission to take care of you too. For this reason, researchers suggest that parents have some “you” time during a testing window. It is suggested that as parents, we also need to use relaxation techniques, talk about our anxiety with another adult, get enough rest, eat well and get plenty of exercise. Our children will model how we cope with the stress of test taking.
