Listen to Relaxing Music or Sounds
Like guided imagery, relaxing music and sounds can have a positive effect on your child's nerves. Search for nature sounds and relaxing music for children on YouTube and iTunes. Choose instrumental songs without lyrics, which can get stuck in your child's head during study sessions and testing. Your child probably can't bring a music player into the testing room, but he can listen to music on the way to school or during lunchtime or breaks on his test day.
