On busy home lives, structure and handling teens with very different approaches to studying for GCSEs

Jenny is mum to two teen girls. One is taking her GCSEs in 2022 and the other the following year. Both are incredibly sporty and keep Jenny and her husband busy with matches and practices in addition to the usual teen activities.

We talk about how to manage hectic schedules and hope to keep on top of everything. We also learn that Jenny’s girls are very different in their approach to study and revision. One is very organised and a perfectionist while the other is more chaotic and more self-confident. Jenny talks about learning to approach things differently. We also think about the importance of family support and also of self-sufficiency.
