It is that time of year again. The time that you have been looking forward to, but also dreading…..Finals. Finals signal the end of the school year and the beginning of summer, but that time of the year puts a lot of pressure on students and on their parents. It is during this time of the year that projects that have been known about all year are finally due. Students often feel burnout at this point and are scrambling to get all of their major projects done as well as studying for their final exams.
Its during this stressful time for students, that parents also feel overwhelmed. Parents want to be there for their child and encourage them to do their best even though they may feel stressed. It is difficult for parents to handle their stressed child. Their children may snap at them or their siblings randomly. It is important that parents take charge and understand why their child is behaving that way.
Stress happens to everyone both young and old. It is important to learn coping skills in order to deal with stressful situations in a healthy way. Going to counseling can provide an opportunity to learn coping skills for stress as well as teach parents how to work with their children who are feeling stressed.
