A friend of mine who practices in herbal medicine has advised me that a cup of mint tea does wonders for kids concentration. Maybe one for the test morning.

Yuk! :wink:

I find I concentrate very hard when I drink herbal teas - on not being sick!

Chocolate milkshake seems to work for my son.

With you there Amber.
I have a friend who lives on camomile tea and I have always to be down wind of her when she has a cup. It smells like steaming silage to me. I am afraid mint tea is the same.
My son had a black pudding fry up on the morning of the exam ( in bed ) and showed no signs of nerves.

On the first day I gave my son all the recommended stuff. Porridge for breakfast, banana on the way and plenty of water. He came out of the test very upset because he didn't think he'd done well. So second day we got up late and grabbed burger and chips on the way there - no tears.

We did all the right things for our first 11+ exam, but for subsequent ones found a full English breakfast hit the spot! :D

Banana before going in to the test. Provided a distraction from the queue if nothing else.

Is the herbal tea for the parent or child? I think I will probably need something alot stronger to settle the nerves?
