As Thursday 20 August approaches, the media (and helpful people like us!) are full of advice about what to do when your children receive those crucial GCSE exam results.  The trip to school on that Thursday morning will be one full of anxiety and apprehension for your offspring and this is where you come into your own as a parent. We all know that as parents we suffer from that nervousness too, but because we have wisdom on our side (or pretend we do) and the benefit of our own experiences, we know that it’s not those exam results that really matter – it’s what your child does with them afterwards that really counts.
