It’s mid-August. The heatwave’s over, there are adverts for school uniform everywhere you look and – if you’re the parent of teens of a certain age – Results Day is looming.
Whether it’s GCSEs or A’Levels, our children seem to be under enormous pressure. In their minds, their entire future depends on what Results Day brings and any grade slippage will be utterly disastrous.
It’s not true, of course, but given that outlook, it’s little wonder that no-one can relax the night before the drama unfolds.
It’s incredibly hard, when you feel your child’s anxiety, to resist the temptation to give them the heart-to-heart pep talk about it not being the end of the world if results don’t go their way.
You mean well, of course, but it’s not helping. It really isn’t. They’re probably seeing a barrage of similar ‘reassurance’ in the media, as well as the social media chatter from their peers, who seem intent on spreading unease. What’s done is done: step away from the phone and the tablet.
Better, we think, to help your child to feel comfortable and loved on Results Eve: home and family is their safe place, after all. Cook their favourite dinner (without making reference to it), give them peace to think, room for distraction and a comfy, cosy bed that’s the equivalent of a big hug.
Our Spundown range offers grade-A plumpness without weight, as well as breathable warmth and softness. However much tossing and turning goes on, the Spundown duvet will mould to their form, and their pillow will always offer up that all-important cool side.
The whole range is machine washable at home, so it can cope with almost literally anything a teenager can throw at it – and be back on the bed the same day.
And when those brilliant and well-deserved results come in and the university place is secured, the first thing they’ll want to do is take that wonderful snuggly duvet with them. They’ll never admit it – and they may not even realise it, but it’s that ‘hug’ they’re taking away. Just try and stop them.
