Parental expectations and our need to gain parental approval is the most natural component in a parent and child relationship. However when it comes to academics, it can be a major reason for conflict and disapproval. There is a lot of emotional investment in both parties when it comes to scoring a certain grade in these competitive exams.
There are a few pointers to remember in to counter the thought processes that may have a negative impact on your well being.
- You’ve done your best, have faith that your parents have watched you through that process.
- Communicate with your parents about your stressors and make sure you’re being heard.
- Spend time before your results and after your exams, in building a relationship with them. Make up for the time that was lost during preparation and reconnect with your loved ones.
- Tell your family that you love them.
Lastly, remember that the exam period is temporary and it will never outlast your relationship with your family.
