On August 25th 2019, the seminar "Respond to School Stress" organized by Vietnam - France Psychology Institute (VFPI) in collaboration with “Đọc Sách Cùng Con” Club was successfully held.
For over two hours, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Tran Thu Huong in Psychology and Dr. Nguyen Thuy Anh in Education, together with parents, delved deep into understanding the phenomenon of school stress, covering its signs, causes, and dealing mechanisms. Many parents were surprised to learn that a portion of children's stress stems from the stress experienced by adults. Due to stress, parents unintentionally overlook their children's need for listening and express words that may hurt them, leading them into a state of tension. A fun quiz at the beginning of the session revealed that three-quarters of parents have a high level of stress. To help children reduce stress, parents should first reflect on and adjust themselves.
During the seminar, parents had the opportunity to share challenges in raising their children. These concerns ranged from worries about their children having few friends, how to help them become more open, to managing their anger. With advice from experts such as Associate Professor Dr. Nguyen Thi My Loc, Dr. Nguyen Thai Binh and Assoc. Prof. Dr. Tran Thu Huong, parents now realize that just holding their child's hand can bring them peace, and spending a few minutes listening to music or going to the supermarket can help relieve stress after a long and tiring day.
Stress is always present in our surroundings. While stress can lead to a variety of consequences, it can also bring benefits if we know how to handle it. To help children overcome school-related stress and stress in general, the most important thing parents should do is to be there, open their hearts, and listen to their children.
