CBSE 2014 Results and Suicide Threats:Dos and Don’ts for Parents and Students
Post-exam stress is common among students, which gets even deadlier as the result date approaches all too quickly. Needless to say, result time is equally stressful for parents.
Parents thrust their expectations on their kids writing an important exam of their life. And sometimes, kids too, knowingly or unknowingly, set very unrealistic goals for themselves. All it wreaks havoc on their respective lives. In fact, the situation goes out of control completely like in case of two stressed out kids who committed suicide in 2012 right after the CBSE results were announced.
After one year, parents are back to square one looking each other into their eyes for some guidelines to help their kids cope with the stress during CBSE result time. Keeping this crucial time in mind, we have brought special guidelines for both parents and students. Let’s go through them:
