Hi Moms,

Final exams are on board.

Your kids may be studying in various classes.

Please share here, as how or in what way, do you help your child to get ready for the exams.

You can share, whether you will teach them only during the exams or throughout the year.

You can share, whether you will ask them to answer all the questions only the day before the exams, or whether, you will just ask them to revise the portions.

Do they go for tutions? If yes, do they go even during exams?

Till what time, will the kid study for the exams?

Will they get any relaxation during studying? You can mention those.

If the kid is studying in the night time, how will you help them to be awake?

Any special food for them during exams?

How will you relieve their tension or fear?

How will they feel about the exams?

Please share all these, so that, other moms will surely get benefited by your tips.

When my son was studying, I used to help him in his studies till his 12th std.

In lower classes, I used to teach him all the subjects. Later in higher classes, he needed my coaching only in very few subjects, that too, very few chapters.

I didn't send him for any tutions.

So, I used to prepare him throught the year.

Once a chapter is over, I used to ask questions from that and clarify his doubts.

Those clarifications will be much more clarified in the week ends , but without stress.

I used to explain each and everything along with living examples. Nowadays, we have lots of computer aided education. These may help you people, a lot.

During the exams, I will just ask him to revise all the portions.

During the study holidays, I will ask to study the subjects, according to his exam timetable. So that, it could be revised the day before the exam.

If he had lots of portions, I asked him to take up 2 or 3 subjects for a day and finish certain portions for that day.

From the starting of the study holidays, he used to study till 11 p.m. I will ask him to ensure atleast 6 to 7 hrs. of sleep during the night.

Most of the time, I will also be awake along with him. But I will not be next to him always. I will be in some other room.

I always avoided TV programs, during his exams and studying time, so that, he should not get distracted.

I asked him not to take stomach full, since, it may make him sleepy.

Once in a while, he used to ask for tea or hot milk when he needed to study very hard. But this was not a regular practice.

During these times, I was strict on few things.

After every 2 hours of study, he must go for a small walk or hear some melodious music or jump or dance to any music.

These things, surely relieved his tension or fear during his exams.

I strictly avoided oily foods, junk foods and concentrated mainly on greens, easily digestable foods, salads, sprouted snacks etc.

I was very particular, that he didn't take any outside food or water from outside.These things were to prevent any diseases during his exams.

I didn't allow any family tensions to reach him.

I always used positive words to make his mind positive.

Very nice & useful thread Jayanthy.

Upto 5th std only I took care of my son for his study. After that my hubby has taken care of him. That too Maths only. Other subjects he will manage himself.

Till now, he did n't go any tuition centre. He will manage himself.

By nature, Krishna has memory power & grasping power. He will listen lessons in the classroom itself, while teacher teaching. So he don't read much in home. He'll do his homework and other activity (project) work. That too he will do himself after 6th std.

Relaxation means, often he'll listen music & watch youtube videos in science related matter.

Nothing special food, I'll give him normal routine food only.

He don't have any fear or tension about exams. Exam days also as normal days according to him.

Super brainy Krishna is always super.

Happy to know that, he manages very well with his studies.

Very happy to know that, he is not going for tutions, his way of relaxation, his courage about the studies.

This will surely help him to come out with flying colors.

நல்ல த்ரெட் ஜெயந்திகா

நான் ஹரிஷ் 3rd std படிக்கும் வரை கூட இருந்து படிக்க வச்சேன்.

இப்பவெல்லாம் அவனே படிசிடுவான். ஹரிஷ் ரொம்ப discipline அவங்க டீச்சர் அவனை ஒரு குறையும் சொல்லிட கூடாதுன்னு நினைப்பான் அதனால நான் அவனை கேட்கிற வேலையே இல்லை....

ஹரிஷ் கணக்கு ரொம்ப நல்லா போடுவான், சயின்ஸ் ரொம்ப பிடிக்கும். மத்த சப்ஜெக்ட்ஸ் அவனே படிச்சிடுவான். சோசியல் மட்டும் அவ்வளவா பிடிக்காது அதுக்கு மட்டும் கொஞ்சம் தொல்லை பண்ணுவான் மத்தபடி ஒன்னும் பிரச்சனை இல்லை.

எனக்கு ஹிந்தி தோடா தோடா தான் மாலும் அது மட்டும் என் ப்ரண்ட் சொல்லி தராங்க.

நாங்க எப்பவுமே ரொம்ப டிவி பார்க்க மாட்டோம். நல்ல புது படம் வந்தா சிடி வாங்கி போட்டு பார்ப்போம். அவன் டெய்லி கொஞ்ச நேரம் கார்ட்டூன் பார்ப்பான், கி போர்டு வாசிப்பான். நைட் கொஞ்ச நேரம் சினிமா பாட்டு கேட்பான், சில நேரம் பாட்டு போட்டுட்டு ஆடுவான்.

நான் அவனை டெய்லி கொஞ்ச நேரம் கண்டிப்பா வெளிய போய் விளையாட சொல்லுவேன்.

நைட் சாப்பாடு எப்பவுமே எங்க வீட்ல ஹெவியா இருக்காது. இன்னும் பெரிய கிளாஸ் போக போக எப்படி இருக்குமோ தெரியலை.

ஒன்னு சொல்ல மறந்திட்டேன் ஹரிஷ் தான் இந்த வருஷம் அவங்க ஸ்கூல் fifth stdla All Rounder
