5. Stress Management

In this difficult period, perhaps your child would ask you fearfully, “What would happen to me if I fail PSLE?” This is a sign of your child feeling overwhelmed by the stress of the exams, and it is vital to assure them that regardless of how they perform, your love for them will not change, as long as they put in the hard work. This is also a good time to talk to them about their future prospects and give them a goal to work towards. What is your child's aspiration? What is his or her desired choice of secondary school, dream college, or career path? Setting goals with your child subtly strengthens the importance of studying hard to help your child achieve these goals, without giving them undue pressure.
