Hi all, my son has appeared for 10th board exams this year. As the results approaching, I am noticing that he remains very quiet and scared. Please advise.

Have a chat with your child in advance, tell him exam results are not end of the world but a process whihc everyone has to go through. Tell him you would be supportive and around even if he scores average marks:)

Hi Prince! It is indeed disheartening to c ur child like this. U need to understand Whatever he has done in exams cannot be changed now so it is better to be prepared even for the worst. So before making him understand we as parents need to realise our reaction might frustrate the child further. Well u need to take ur child in confidence and tell him whatever the results will be u r with him. He should not worry about future till the results are out. U cud boost his morale by motivating him. Talk about the positive side, that u know how much he worked hard. That how good he has been in the past academically or in co curricular activities or whatever are his strong points. Show him how other options are available even if he does not do well academically. U need to be with him especially when results are out. And Make sure u do not react even if results are below expectations. Take him for a movie or make him join some classes , show him the brighter side of life. Show him u love him and care for him no matter what results will be. Hope this helps!
