COPING WITH ACADEMIC PRESSURE
There is an incredible amount of academic pressure placed on young people in the United States.
At a very early age, children are encouraged to continuously think ahead and academically prepare themselves for subsequent academic milestones. This cyclical pattern of continuously anticipating the next step in academia can be quite damaging. Teens can experience academic pressure from any number of sources. In fact, it is highly common for young people to experience self-imposed academic pressure. Unfortunately, academic pressure is actually counterintuitive to academic success. It is not uncommon for academic pressure in teens to manifest as emotional and/ or physical stress. This, in turn, can cause a young person to preform poorly in their schoolwork as they attempt to upkeep unsustainable study habits. Teens can also lose interest in participating in extracurricular activities and spending time with friends.
