Advice for dealing with teenagers coping with exam stress

This month ACP member and child psychotherapist Rachel Goldin has been interviewed by the BBC about how parents and family members should deal with teenagers as they approach the exam season.

Rachel's advice, which was broadcast during Laura Shavin's show on BBC Radio Essex on 16 May, included helpful tips for parents on how to support their teenagers while they were going through a stressful time revising and sitting exams.

"They still need parents very much but in a different way," she says. "Not too much policing but take an interest in how they are getting on with their studies.

"A level of trust is important as well, " she adds. "They are growing up and need to take responsibility."
