According to Dr. Prashant Bhimani, a leading consultant psychologist, “I encounter youngsters going through performance anxieties. They are hugely burdened with expectations from their parents, and want to score higher marks that directs to last minute palpitation, mental blocks, lack of concentration, perspiration, and lack of confidence. Parents should be more understanding and provide their children with more space. They should ensure not to overload their children with their own expectations.” He further said, “Too many expectations may also hamper children’s health day before the exam day. Thus parents should encourage children to keep their minds calm, and wrap up their studies soon so that they can hit bed at the earliest, by 10.30/11 pm without much delay.”
