My son is in class five…a very intelligent boy but unable to score high marks in exams…what should I do?
Intelligent boy not scoring marks –
Is there any fear of exam? (MIMULUS)
Does he forget during exam but remember after the exam? (SCLERANTHUS)
Or is he going blank and forgetting the answer? (WHITE CHESTNUT)
Or does he not have enough time? (ELM)
Or feeling shaky while reading the question paper? (RESCUE REMEDY)
Or making silly mistakes and getting fewer marks. (IMPATIENS)
Is he sitting to study putting the required efforts? (OAK)
Or not sitting to study in the house? (CHESTNUT BUD)
I think he has got fear of exams, because he does errors in the paper, same questions he answers correctly at home….similarly in maths too…all the sums are right at home.
But in school he makes silly mistakes and thus scores less. He does study what is required for his age or class, no problem in that.
These questions were given to you with the intention that you will get the answers from him.
Ask him, get the answers from him and then ascertain whether he has got fear or forgetfulness.
As guided by you, I spoke to him.
He says he panics whenever he gets the test paper, fears that he will be unable to complete it. So, it is fear actually.
Then give him flower remedies RESCUE REMEDY and LARCH (confidently to handle the paper) on the dates of all examinations.
Put 6 to 7 pills of above flower remedies in water and make sip every half hour. He can take the bottle to the exam also. Water can be 300 to 500 ml.
Choices, Decisions and Solutions – Part I
When you have any of the tendencies mentioned below:
- You oscillate between the two options
- Have a tendency to postpone things.
- Have the habit of filing your tax returns only on the last day of submission
- You are an 11th hr specialist, and say, “I have time, therefore I will do it later”. In the end, you will become impatient, needing the Bach Flower Remedy Impatiens.
- Have a delayed memory – not able to remember it at the right time. For example, during the exam/interview, will not be able to remember the answers. After the exam/interview is over, you can remember them.
For all above mental states, one needs to take the Bach Flower Remedy Scleranthus.
When we say we have enough time and postpone, then we will never find the time. It will always slip from our hand.
Tom was feeling frustrated that he was not allocated any (software) projects. He was in IT industry.
He knew that if he was to be like this for some more time, he would be fired from the company.
His typical feeling in the evening would be to leave the company. Though in the morning, while going to the office, he would have high hopes and think “why not I wait for some more time”.
To handle this type of oscillation, (one thought in the morning and the opposite thought in the evening – mood swing) Naran S. Balakumar suggested him to take Scleranthus. He was taking the pills for a few days.
One fine day he decided to inform his boss that he was planning to put in his papers. He reached office just to realize his boss was on leave for a couple of days.
Therefore, Tom decided to wait, and to talk to his boss in person.
On Monday his boss arrived.
He informed Tom that the project they were waiting for so long has been approved and was signed off by the customer. In addition, the client has agreed for Tom to manage the project too.
Scleranthus has saved his job, Tom claims these days.
