Beat Testing Anxiety

If your child doubts his abilities, help him squash those inner voices by having him write down his fears and counter them aloud. If he thinks he'll fail, instruct him to say, "I am NOT going to fail. I studied hard and I CHOOSE to remember." Get in his corner to help him knock out that internal bully, so that taking tests doesn't induce so much anxiety.
