HI there everyone and hope you are enjoying a restful Easter weekend.
Trying to motivate my son to do some studying for his upcoming GCSE's and not getting very far. Message boards with reminders, displayed rota of exams and full access to internet and myself and two study sessions in three weeks, as he gets annoyed, frustrated and removes himself from any conversation relating to exams.
He forgets to attend homework session arranged by school and the only help I can see he will get to see him through his exams is extra time.
He is lucky that he is going to be able to sit his GCSE's apart from English which he has been removed to do two to one session with a LSA and another kid in simialr position. Although the outcome does not look very promising result wise Im rather proud he has managed to control his anxiety enough to sit the exams.
I can not believe he is about to turn 16, sit his exams and hopefully go of to college if he gets a pass of some kind. Im so worried about his future and with his sister now having some issues of her own and there is only me to sort it all out as hubby died 11 years ago Im starting to have a wobble or two of my own which is not ideal to keep son and daughter in a stress free environment.
I just take each day as it comes but if there is a parent out there in a simialr situation and can offer any words of wisdom or has been through the stress and tension of exam time please do let me know your thoughts.
