In this week’s Beat Exam Stress podcast I’m talking about something we all like to pretend doesn’t happen – how we as parents, teachers or tutors can accidentally make exam stress worse for our kids. Plus, of course, I’m sharing what you can do about it. I’m taking you through the subtle ways our own worries, limiting beliefs and exam stress fears can affect the subtle signals (and less subtle ones!) that we give to our kids, which they take as pointers on how they should feel and behave.

We’re going to talk about:

  • how your brain means you see what you expect – and how this can lead to a negative spiral with your child’s exam stress
  • how to spot when our own hidden baggage might be getting in the way of us supporting our kids
  • the three vital roles your child needs you to be playing, right now, and how our ‘stuff’ can get in the way
  • simple techniques for letting this go, so you can feel more grounded and confident and get your own ‘stuff’ out your child’s way

All of the techniques in the course work as soon as your child is calm enough to try them.


Over To You:

How might you be adding to the stress your child is feeling?

Did you resonate with the concept of ‘projection vs perception’?

How might you manage your own emotions differently, so you can be your child’s rock, cheerleader and advocate?
