Any work can be stressful, but at the same time, stress is just a part of our daily life. Together with your child, you can learn to minimize its impact while staying productive. Here are some of our best tips on how to do it at ease:
Firstly, recognition and appreciation are important for your child. Be a proud parent, and don’t be afraid to show it. Talk to your child, support them, and don’t be harsh when they fail. Explain the chances of being selected for the role to minimize the stress of rejections.
To avoid stressing over the timing and being late, start scheduling and prioritizing tasks over another. Having a plan will help you and your child to be aware of your time and activities.
Also, remember to take care of physical and mental health. Make sure your child gets enough sleep and spends time outdoors. Resting is just as important as working. Plan weekends at the theme park or hit the beach. Make sure your child is not only working – give them time to see friends and fool around.
There’s also a visualization technique! So, let’s say your child is really stressed out about an upcoming audition. Try to relax their mind by offering to visualize the whole process with them where you and they will play their parts. Visualization can help with fear of public speaking and overall stress.
Now when you know all this, it’s time to get your child booked for a gig. Go to KidsCasting.com, find casting calls in your area, and apply. Make it happen for your child!
