Good schooling and tuition are not substitutes for emotional cushioning.
Help your child to maintain his/her confidence especially when s/he seems discouraged by dropping marks or grades. Do not burden your child with your anxiety.
The achievement goals should be realistically set according to your child's capability.
Do not mix academic issues with family conflicts.
Praise your child when s/he does well. Encourage your child's performance with positive statements like, "well done", “you did your best" “I’m sure you’ll pick it up next time” rather than saying "that was not enough"
Work out our child's schedule with him/her instead of nagging him/her. There could be learning problems.
Do NOT harp on pervious failures or results
Under-achievement may be due to your child believing it is safer not to try, than to try and fail.
If achievement expectations are too high some children would prefer to be criticized for being lazy rather than being considered not good enough.
Humour relieves tension. Be light and humorous with the child.
Try to gain your child's confidence and discuss his/her problems with him/her, help your child to find solutions.
Exams are not the end of the world.
Accept that expectation for everyone to do well is unrealistic as many won't pursue studying long-term.
