A Roar of Support for Parents

Welcome to Tigermum! Here, we understand the whirlwind of emotions that come with raising a teenager, especially when they’re facing the pressure of exams. We’ve all heard the stories – the sleepless nights, the mountains of revision materials, the constant dance between encouragement and gentle nudges. But fear not, fellow parents, you’re not alone in this jungle!

Tigermum isn’t just another parenting website. It’s a community built by parents, for parents, who are all on the same wild ride of navigating the exam years with our teenagers. We believe in the power of shared experiences, and that’s why I, your friendly neighbourhood Tigermum (or should I say, Tigress?), am here.

My name is Daisy, and I’m a mum based in beautiful Devon, in the South West of the UK. I have a front-row seat to the thrilling (and sometimes terrifying) world of teenage exams. My own son, a whirlwind of energy and teenage angst himself, is about to embark on his own exam journey. So, in a way, I’m learning alongside all of you.

This website was born from the realisation that the exam process can feel isolating. We’re bombarded with advice, bombarded with pressure, and sometimes just left feeling a little lost in the jungle of expectations. Here at Tigermum, we want to be your guide, your cheerleader, and your support system. We know you have a million questions, and we’re here to help you find the answers that work best for you and your unique tiger cub (I mean, teenager!).

Why Tigermum?

The name “Tigermum” might conjure up images of a strict, demanding parent. But here’s the thing: raising a successful teenager is about so much more than just pushing them towards top grades. It’s about nurturing their strengths, celebrating their individuality, and fostering a love of learning that goes beyond the exam hall. We believe in the fierce determination and unwavering love of a tiger mother, but with a healthy dose of empathy and understanding.

What You’ll Find Here:

  • Practical Tips and Resources: We’ll share tried-and-tested strategies for exam preparation, from creating effective study routines to managing stress and anxiety. We’ll also provide you with a treasure trove of resources, from revision guides to online tools, to help your teenagers excel.
  • Open and Honest Discussions: We believe in open communication – both with your teenagers and within our community. We’ll have open forums where you can share your experiences, ask questions, and support other parents going through the same challenges.
  • A Celebration of Success: Exams are a hurdle, but not the only one. We want to celebrate your victories, big and small. Did your child finally master that tricky topic? Did they conquer their exam anxiety? Share their wins with us, and let’s roar together!
  • The Lighter Side of Exams: Let’s face it, the exam process can be intense. We’ll keep things light with humorous anecdotes, relatable stories, and a healthy dose of self-deprecating humor (because let’s be honest, we’ve all experienced those “epic fail” parenting moments!).

Together, We Can Roar!

At Tigermum, we believe that with the right support, every teenager has the potential to roar and achieve their full potential. We’re here to be your partner in this exciting (and sometimes nerve-wracking) journey. So, join us, share your experiences, learn from others, and let’s navigate this jungle of exams together. Remember, you’ve got this, mama (or papa) tiger!
