How to Help Your Stressed Out Student
For many students, especially in high school and college, stress has become an all too familiar part of the school experience. But it doesn’t have to! Parents, here are some ways you can help your child cope with stressors at school and keep it from having a negative effect on their academic performance.
1. Encourage Sleep
Cutting back on sleep may seem like a good way to squeeze in a few more hours studying, but consistently missing out on extra hours of shut eye can affect concentration, memory and more. A well rested body can handle stress better too so remind your kids that they’d actually be better off getting some sleep and studying in the morning when they’re refreshed and more alert after a good night’s rest.
Help your child make a priority list and encourage her or him to tackle the most critical or difficult courses or projects first, when their brain is fresh If the list is getting a little too long be sure to cross off any non-essentials!
3. Get a Tutor

These are just a few ways you can encourage your child to keep stress from getting in the way of their academic
