With the exam season coming up, this is not a good time for students to fall ill. As children hunker down to revise for their papers, it will not be surprising if they fail to observe healthy lifestyle principles. Therefore, parents play a vital role in providing the support children need to tackle this crucial period leading up to the examinations.

1 Help junior develop a revision plan
• Guide your child in organizing his revision routine and timetable instead of planning a study schedule on his behalf.
• Ensure that he allocates one-hour-long sessions to revise each subject.
• Have him set aside about 20 minutes for a short break after every hour of revision. His schedule should also include time for meals.
• Remind your child not to schedule a last-minute study session on the morning of the exam. Doing so may unnecessarily increase anxiety and stress, especially since he will need to be calm and alert for the examination.
