From my heart to yours

Standard

My 12 year old son who just started Year 8 last week set a goal for himself, that is to DO BETTER this year.  So came the first day of school and there was the excitement to begin with his plans, improved organization and developed time management.  Just when everything was planned, the unexpected came.  He got sick on the third day and the viral bug stayed for 2.5 days.  Hence, he was away for two days on the first week of school.  So he began to worry, thinking that he had missed several lessons that he does not only need to keep up but he needs to CATCH up a lot!

As his mother who cares so much, I know he is starting to be a bit anxious, and his stress level is starting to rise up.  This morning before he went off to school, I wished him good luck and of course, in my heart I prayed for him to be well and safe in school.  When he comes back from school I will be at work and so I can’t be there to witness how he will manage the “catching up” in the afternoon.  I thought of giving him a message, something that is so visual that he does not to read it from his phone, something that will remind him while he’s doing his tasks on his study table.  So, I printed a downloadable and printable “keep calm” message and put it in an old picture frame and then put it on his desk.  I know deep within, I can’t remove his worries nor reduce his anxieties.  He needs to do it himself, he must be able to handle pressures and exercise his coping mechanisms.  I am here only to remind, to support, to encourage and to  guide.  He is the one who can make himself CALM and CARRY ON!!
