I totally agree with this article. My kids are lucky, they don’t have any learning disabilities to make things worse but they do stress a lot about the tests.
I always tell my kids to just do their best and not to worry about it. I also tell them it’s the government’s way of testing the schools to make sure kids are learning, not really about the kids themselves.
The school does a lot of practice, so are essentially teaching for the test so the school can have a higher score. But having said that, I have heard them say to the kids that there is no pressure, just do your best because it’s only one test.
