ISTOCK

pplying for a scholarship can be a daunting experience. For children, the stakes feel high and the pressure is on. It behoves parents to be mindful of what their child might be feeling throughout the process, and help find ways to reduce anxiety and stress. First, make sure you’re pursuing the best fit for your child, says Dr Kimberley O’Brien, principal psychologist at the child and adolescent psychology practice Quirky Kid Clinic. “Looking at which school is the right match for your child is really important,” Dr O’Brien says. Consider your child’s interests; if they’re not naturally academic, sitting for a scholarship at an academic-focused school isn’t a great idea, Dr O’Brien adds.
