Dear Mum and Dad
I want to start by thanking you for all you have done for me till date. I know sometimes I do not show how much I appreciate you, but I want you to know, that you are the light of my world, and everything I am is because of you. As exams approach, I want to express some of my thoughts to you.

Please have faith and confidence in me and support me. Allow me to take breaks when I need them and also make me my favorite food. Celebrate my accomplishments and help me treat my failures as lessons learned.

Please do not take my phone away and interfere in my personal life. Don’t give me more chores than I can handle at a particular time and don’t compare me with others. Please don’t take my moodiness personally in stressful times.

I love you so much, mum and dad. And again, I want to thank you for everything you’ve done for me. Please let’s get through these exams together and help me to finish them strongly.
