Kids are under a lot of pressure these days and with that pressure comes vulnerability.
Take students for instance. A study by the American Test Anxieties Association revealed that the majority of students report being more stressed by tests and schoolwork than by anything else in their lives.
With 16-20% of students experiencing high anxiety, and another 15% feeling moderate high nervousness before a test, that’s a lot of children walking around with elevated cortisol levels (stress-producing hormone).
Is there anything a parent can do to help their child overcome test anxiety?
Kids who get anxious before an exam experience physiological symptoms like tension, worry, dread, fear of failure, and even dry mouth, and nausea. They “freeze” or “blank” on tests. Test anxiety reduces memory, increases mistakes and lowers test scores. If the stress is high enough, some kids will even experience a full-fledged panic attack.
Although being a little nervous before a test can help keep a child focused on peak performance, too much stress and anxiety works against them. Anxiety will hurt their chances of getting good grades on the exam.
And if you give your child medications for their test anxiety, then you have to subject them to the side effects that come with that medicine. For most, that is not an option.
We all want our kids to be confident and have high self-esteem. So wouldn’t it be nice if there was a way to help them overcome their nervousness before an exam? Did you know there is a safe, natural way to help your child overcome their test anxiety?
Whether your child is in grade school or college, this natural option is one of my favorite energy healing techniques I recommend to anyone suffering from situational stress or anxiety.
It’s simple, safe, and anyone can use it.

Hi everyone, it’s Carolyn Harrington with The Art of Healing and today I want to share with you one of my favorite energy healing techniques. It’s great for when you’re in a stressful situation, or maybe you’re nervous, or you’ve been in a traumatic situation. It’s called Rescue Remedy.
It’s a flower essence, and there’s water in here that has energy in it that will help you calm down. It’s not like taking valium or anything. There’s nothing chemical in it, and you don’t feel this immediate ‘whoosh’ calming down effect, but it’s very subtle. So because of that, it’s great for all ages. It’s great for children if they get really anxious before an exam when they wake up, and they got this big exam.
Just put a couple of drops in water and then you drink the water. It’s very easy. There’s really no taste to it.
Think about someone who gets anxious before they get on a plane; you can use it for that situation. Or maybe someone has had a traumatic experience like a car accident. It doesn’t even matter if the car accident just happened. It could have happened a year ago or a couple of years ago and they still get anxious just thinking about it. Great for something like that.
Or a big, athletic event where you know somebody in your family just wants to place so well, so they get really nervous. You can give it to them before the game, and it’ll just help them play. It kind of blocks their nervousness, so that allows them to be successful in whatever they’re doing.
It’s good for all ages. Safe even for pets. Think about pets before or during a thunderstorm sometimes they get really nervous.
You can find it in any store. Most stores I guess. It’s in our local grocery store, of course, there’s always Amazon and your health food stores. And again like I said it’s great for all ages. It’s call Rescue Remedy and its an energy healing technique I recommend all the time. It really doesn’t let you down. Have it on hand in your house.
