Last updated 2:57 PM on 26 May 2014

If your child is studying for the HSC, you're probably feeling the stress too. Many parents want to help but don't want to interfere.

As well as pre-exam tension, there are other common factors that can make life seem even more challenging for the whole family.

Year 12 is often the year when students:

  • lose interest in school
  • develop an intense relationship with a boyfriend or girlfriend
  • get their driver's licence
  • experiment with legal or illegal drugs
  • have a part-time job
  • develop an eating disorder
  • suffer from depression.

If any of these concerns sounds familiar, don't despair. You're not alone - and this won't last forever.
