Children & Focusing Roundtable Series
Coping With Exams & Grades: How Focusing Can Help

Part of the Focusing Roundtable Series

In many countries around the world, the start of summer is the time for taking several exams or tests in a row. In addition to the stresses of preparing for and taking the exams, children must cope with the results of their exams. Their academic performance affects their future: how they enter summer break, what next year will look like, and, indeed, their potential life opportunities and success.

Being assessed though exams and grades causes a lot of stress for children and their families and can trigger many different emotions and experiences. Children, their parents, family members, and friends, as well as the larger society, have different views and meanings related to exams and grades, adding to the overall stress of the experience of academic assessment.

In this Roundtable we will connect with our own experiences of being at school, taking those exams and going home with the results. We invite you to explore how we can support children during these stressful times and explore different kinds of expressing and supporting.

Questions and themes we might explore together are:

- How can we create a supportive environment for children at home or at school during their exams?

- In what way do your own personal experiences color your conversations with children on this topic?

- How do we speak about exams, tests, and grades?

- How can you react to statements like “I can’t do this”, “I am stupid”, “I will stress out”, “My life is ruined”, ... ?

Other topics and themes may emerge from our mutual exploration during the Roundtable.

Presented by The International Focusing Institute with hosts, Joke Van Hoeck, Laura Bavalics & René Veugelers
