Top warning signs your child is about to burn out

Burnout is a term that is often associated with 30 something
city workers or people suffering from a “midlife crisis”.  Such is the pressure from schools to sit in
the right place in the league tables that some schools resort to questionable tactics
to enforce that the teachers apply the right level of coercion to get their
students to pass their exams. In the past schools may have left students to
their own devices at revision time, now there is a revolving door of
interventions from nearly all subjects vying for time with their students to
get them to revise for their subject more. The upshot of this is that more
students are feeling extreme pressure, and confusion, as to where to put their
energies; many of whom lack the skills to cope with the exam pressure.
