    What is your take on managing stress in students during this unprecedented time?

    Team 333 days ago

    @Team Dear Parent, stress is the most natural and normal response for adults and children during a pandemic and lockdown. To help students manage their stress, the foremost step that parents and teachers could take is to acknowledge their own stress and find ways to cope with it make self-care a priority. Make sure you get restful sleep, have regular balanced meals, spend time to exercise your body and calm your mind, talk to friends and loved ones, spend a few minutes of quiet time to feel centred and in control of yourself. These practices are proven to have a positive impact on a persons thoughts and behaviours. You would then display calm behaviour and respond more thoughtfully to students with understanding and support. Your positive disposition allows you to co-regulate your students stress you will have a calming effect on students, helping them feel less anxious or stressed. With both adults and students feeling more settled and in control of themselves, they can attend to their work more effectively.
