We moms, spend much of our time mentoring and guiding our kids in their
studies. Since the advent
of No Child Left Behind policy, I noticed that a lot of stress are now added to the classroom curriculum, pushing kids to
earn learning gains at the end of the year. In our state, the standardized tests are being constantly revised, expecting more from
the students each
year, with the tests
getting more difficult and more children getting
stressed out. My
daughter is one of them. She has always been performing at a top level but why this so much
stress? Oh well, she got perfect scores last year and she's expected to outperform
herself. That is too funny!
How can she get better
scores than perfect?
Basically, she is not allowed to relinquish that status in her school and to do the same this year, and where does that leave my daughter? and me? Oh yeah, now we're talking...
a website I saw that helps stressed out kids
and moms like me.They're
having a FREE Webinar this week on how to "de-stress
the standardized tests". They promise to
provide tools, techniques, resources, motivation (and bonuses!) if we join them live
online. I am hoping they have a lot of advice and tips for moms like
