Stress and its alleviation is an intensely personal issue. Each individual has different ways of coping with stress. If a student is able to consciously accept that he/ she is stressed, and also communicates this to his/ her parents, then the process to easing stress has already begun. Exams are serious business, sure. But do your best, and forget about the rest; look at things in a broader perspective. Parents first realize and then convince their children that Board examinations are just one milestone among the many that will be faced in life, and should be viewed and accepted as such, without unnecessary physical or mental trauma.
