Playtime And Exercise

If your studious little champ is concerned about making more time to study, cut down on the playtime and exercise, but don’t abandon it altogether. Playtime and exercise can be great stress busters for your child.

Hygiene

Self-Motivation

Ask your child to take a deep breath and appreciate himself for every question he has answered. Self-motivation will make his brain more active. When he comes across a difficult question, teach him to brush through and not mull over it. Exam hour ...
