PARENTAL PRESSURE
By Karyn T
Over a family board game, Karyn ponders why some parents put so much pressure on their children at exam time. She feels they transfer their own insecurities onto their kids. Karyn's Dad is on hand to explain why this is, and she appreciates that he tries his hardest not to be too strict.

Some of the reasons why parents put much pressure on their children during exams is that,they don't want what they've spent on the child be in vain. And also they want that child to be a principle person in the near future. This helps the child to know that, when you invest in something, you must expect a better income.

I'd like to say something. My father and mothe are strict with me. But I think this is why I'm good at my study now.

marty
i hate it try better if u are to make revision succesful

kirsty c
i think the parents should stop intruding her life but givea little advise

kim
wot a great video luv it how she express her self

Mr. Malhi
i personlly think that it is good to put pressure on children bcause clearly stating the fact that we want our kids to do well and be successfull and not to end up like us with financial problems and other difficulties. all parents do this because we love our kids and care a lot about them.

A super video that shows the struggle of young teenagers at GCSE Examination time. It's best for the teenager to organise ther own revision and workload, let them do it their own way!

kelly
i fink u will do well go 4 it gal!

Michelle
parents do add a lot of pressure on there kids during exam time because they want them to do so well what they dont realise is in putting pressure on them to do so well they can make them do a lot worse so kids should just be aware that if they feel their parents putting pressure on them let them know and dont just deal with it cause at the end of the day its the kids that have to deal with the results - its their exam results not their parents

jemma
i know how she feels about parental pressure, if i leave my revision to go downstairs to get a drink my mum and dad always say 'why arent you revising' but you have just got to remember that they want the best for you so hopefuly this video will make relations between kids and parents more relaxed about revision :-)
