OT…well today is my sons end of the year testing and I know he will be very stressed because he is a perfectionist. He is already ahead by 2 years so I keep telling him he has nothing to worry about and I don’t push. Either way my child seems to think he should know everything and be able to do everything just perfect the first time. Ideas to get him to relax a little bit today would be great! Thanks to you.
Hi…just browsing thru the buzz and found your comment this morning! Your son sounds so much like me…..couldn’t help thinking how he might enjoy a cooking challenge…. mixed with a lot of laughter! Make messes throw in a crazy ingredient…good or not it was fun and funny!… get his mind off TESTING! jus sayin…since I am a cook…my release is music! I go to the piano or harp :) Good luck to ya both!
It’s great that your son is so successful, but I wonder why he’s so driven to be perfect at everything. We can’t always be winners. Anyway, here’s a relaxation technique. Have him lay down and put a cool, wet cloth on his forehead. Have him take a deep breath and hold it for a count of ten, then exhale for a count of 10. Count slowly. Repeat several times. This also works if you’re having a problem falling asleep.
