Life is so simple yet we make it so complicated. Exams are to make the students study, otherwise they would seldom open their books. Yes! It’s a fact. Kids these days find the books and exams so boring because they are so in love with the gadgets in this digital era. In this, they forget that exams are also simple like life. Whatever is taught in a particular session is asked in the exams.
Then why do we fear exams so much, especially board exams? Why do we allow this phobia to attack our minds? The reason is simple. We fear the future so much that we fail to concentrate on the present. We fail to see the capabilities of our own children and start comparing them with our neighbor’s or relative’s children. But why? As the saying goes, you can’t judge a fish by its ability to climb a mountain. Then why this comparison? A child not good is mathematics may become a singer in the future.
A child not good in science may become a business tycoon tomorrow. But, we get so obsessed with marks and results today that we fail to look at the talent our kids are born with.
Ok. Now don’t worry! Dealing with examination stress and phobia is quite natural. Almost every parent and every child deals with it, except a few.
