So we have finally come to the end of exam period. We now will need to live through, and support through, several weeks of waiting for results day and the "do we get the university post or not?" answer. It has been a stressful time for Beth, my beautiful daughter, she has slogged her guts out and we are so proud of her, whatever the out come. She is worried, it was hard and the papers were not kind, but she is pro active, she has NVQ's in beauty she is also working on and is now a Body Shop At Home consultant. She has her fingers in many pies and I know she will succeed with whatever she decides to do. BUT.....If she doesn't get those grades I know she will cry. 2 years work and she's convinced herself she hasn't done well. My job, convince her she can achieve anything she sets her mind to. Make sure she knows that university isn't the be all and end all, give her the confidence to go out into the world of adults and be strong, confident and brave and to be able to conquer her demons. But above all my job is to make sure she knows she is loved and supported, wherever life takes her. Following is an article that I hope will prove useful to those of you who are going through the same.
