A Stressful week of Tests!

What a stressful week I have had! I am sure glad those tests are over.  Whoever came up with an idea like testing us kids all the time?  They are inflicting unnecessary punishment on us innocent kids.  The math part was really hard. I frankly guessed at some of the questions.  My teacher said to not think too much about each question—just read and respond.  Well, that’s what I did.  Some parts were easier for me.  I liked the history part.  There were even some questions in the science section about insects.  I got all of those right because Andy had told me a lot about his underground world and how the ants worked together.  I can’t handle another stressful week like this!

 

Pause, hold a hand—and pray.

After the lights are out and the conversation is over, don’t leave your child for a few minutes. Keep holding your child’s hand. Allow them to fall asleep knowing you are there as their parent and protector. You really don’t have something more important to do. As a parent, your first priority is to ensure that your child knows you care and that you are there as their protector. Building this confidence as they drift off to sleep goes a long way when you need to make corrections later!
