The ISPCC and National Parents Council will have helplines on the day
We are less than 48 hours until this year's Leaving Certificate results will be announced on Wednesday.
Ahead of that, the ISPCC has issued tips to help parents.
Director of services, Caroline O’Sullivan, said: "Although there will be a lot of students who are happy with their results and looking forward to the next stepping stone in life, this week can be a challenging time for many families as some students may feel anxious waiting for their Leaving Cert results."
"Receiving disappointing exam results can be stressful and upsetting for both young people and their parents."
"The best tip is to keep the communication lines open, support your son/daughter through listening and talking, and keep your own expectations in check."
"There can be a lot of pressure on young people to perform well in exams but they should be reassured that there are other options and this is just one stepping stone in life, there are many others."
The ISPCC tips include:
The ISPCC's Childline is available around the clock on 1800-666-666 or visit childline.ie.
Alternatively the National Parents Council, staffed by professional guidance counsellors, is on 1800-265-165.
Other groups have also offered advice as the results approach.
Alcohol Action Ireland, a national charity working to reduce alcohol harm, is encouraging parents to talk to their children about the risks associated with alcohol.
"Students deserve to go out, celebrate getting their results with their friends and we hope they enjoy marking this milestone in their young lives," said head of advocacy and communications with Alcohol Action Ireland, Conor Cullen.
"We know that, for a significant number of young people, their plans to celebrate this week will include alcohol and this is reflected by the fact that they are being targeted by venues, particularly through social media, with drinks promotions that encourage the type of harmful alcohol consumption that is a threat to their health and well-being."
"Many young people may not go out to a venue to celebrate, but alcohol could still be involved when they meet their friends and so it is important that parents speak to their children about their plans, wherever they are going", he adds.
The group also says that there is an obligation on all alcohol retailers to be particularly vigilant in ensuring they are not selling alcohol to minors.
