If you are a parent whose child suffers from testing anxiety, you know how frustrating and heartbreaking it can be to see him or her study, study, study the nights before a test only to come home the next day totally devastated because, once again, it seemed as though they forgot everything they learned once they saw the test questions. You may have tried different things, and have wondered if there is anything else out there that can help.
Fortunately, there are online resources that can help with such matters as this. Some of these, such as onlineeducation.com, provide information and even some materials that you can use to help your child overcome testing anxiety. These resources can include anything from worksheets and study guides that help reinforce what your child has already learned to help in finding online tutors that can help your child get a better grasp of the material.
Even if knowing the material is not really the problem, the tutor may actually be able to help your child by making up tests based on the material being studied, and giving your child a chance to take them in a more relaxed setting. Or, you may be able to use the online resources to find sample tests. If this method is used and your child passes these tests, this may be exactly what was needed to restore their confidence and allow them to perform better in the school environment.
If your child enjoys visiting chat rooms (that you have approved, of course), you may want to take advantage of these online resources. There may be chat rooms devoted to children with testing anxiety. Just talking to others who have overcome this may be the catalyst your child needs to claim his own victory.
