While your children prepare themselves to appear for their boards, a first step towards achieving their goals in life, Let us as parents, also prepare ourselves to support them, motivate them and let them know, that no matter how good or bad they perform, we shall still love them the way we do. Like most of the parents, you might also be worried about your child to outperform, but it’s also important to remember the marks doesn’t only define these children.
As they are getting closer to attempt for their boards, each of us as parents, need to let our child know, that these boards exams does not assess all of what makes each of them special and unique. It would be great if they are top scorers, but just in case even if they score less, please don’t let them feel down. “It’s Okay, It’s Just an exam- you can still do better” is what we need to motivate them for.
It is indeed essential for us parents to sit with them, listen to them and help them release their stress, worries and fears with an assurance that they are and will always be special to you and their worth would remain the same irrespective of the marks or grades they obtain.
“You Are A Hard Worker – We Appreciate How You Always Try To Go Above & Beyond”
Remember this and keep striving to achieve your dreams to the fullest. The boards are your stepping stone towards your dreams, where you need to give your best, without worrying about how good or bad you will score.
You my children, have put in a whole year preparing yourself for the boards. Many of you have had sleepless nights, most of you juggled between school, tuitions and assignment deadlines, a lot of you tried to distance from social media, friends, relatives and almost all of you gave up on your play time just to do well in your boards. And the hard work has helped you be the person you are, Talented, Special and Unique in your own way.
We are never defined by our failures or the marks we score- they only empower us. So no matter if you score a 95% or a 55% for us you all would be achievers with all your natural talents. Do not worry about the judgements, just Stay Focussed in your efforts and start loving each day, because these are the moments which you would cherish for lifetime. Remember, this is just a beginning of your life and there is a lot more to come, which you shall need to face with same hard work and best of your efforts.
Lastly a piece of advice as your School Counsellor, Remember marks should not define your dreams, your dreams should define your marks and streams you need to take after 10th. I see the future artist, an entrepreneur, astronaut, engineers, sportsmen, politicians and a lot more in you, but before all this, I see a wonderful Human Being, a dedicated hard worker, a learning enthusiast, who is empathetic, kind, trustworthy and thoughtful and that every day you try to be your very best.
We couldn’t be more proud of You then we already are for the person you have shaped yourself to be!
BEST OF LUCK!!!!!
