Event Description:
Calling all parents with children sitting either the GL or AQE or both Transfer exams this coming November 2019.

We all know how stressful it is during the run up of exams and in particular the day of exams. We as parents can be left feeling helpless in terms of what can we do to help our child during this pressurised time to perform to the best of their ability? A child can work extremely hard on the academic preparation for the big day of Transfer but on the day it can be nerves that can determine the ultimate result which may not be representative of true ability.

As a parent of a child who undertook the Transfer in 2017 and a second child preparing to sit the test in 2019 I completely understand the stresses and strains of preparing children for their first big test in life. Many children loose sleep, doubt their ability and become anxious in the run up to tests which can ultimately affect their performance on the day.

As a parent and a Relax Kids coach I have developed a 2 hour workshop to help your child learn relaxation skills to help performance, gain confidence and visualise success.The techniques can also help with improved sleep, better recall and improved focus and concentration- all important things when doing exams.

What will be covered:

✅How our brain works- why we cant think as clearly when we feel anxious and stressed.
✅What can we do to help our body and brain feel less stressed, so that we can think more clearly.
✅Learn and practice relaxation techniques including:
🔹️Stretches 🔹️Deep breathing🔹️ Self Massage
🔹️Positive affirmations 🔹️Mindfulness Meditation
🔹️Growth Mindset 🔹️ Power of Yet
✅Games and Crafts will also be used to make the workshop fun and relaxed and allow the children to bring some affirmation crafts home to help as a reminder that they can be calm and confident.

A handout will be provided so that parents can benefit from what the children have been taught. Parents will gain access to a closed parents FB group so that they can ask questions and have access to useful tips.
