Hello mam/sir, I am blessed with two children. some how I am feeling that we are failed as parents as our elder son is not serious about his studies. we tried many times to make him understand that studies are important but he just don't listen to us. he plays on cmptr all day. and now when we tell him anything he just put his head down as if he is not interested in listening what we want to say. I want to take my son to a psychologist but my husband is against this. we had earlier taken him to a psychologist who said that my son is below average child that's why he is lagging behind. Pl suggest how I should handle this situation

I understand your concern. Sandhya he has to find studies interesting like the games he plays. Can you find some interactive worksheets or lessons on the topic from the internet. Maybe he would learn when it is computer based. There are YouTube videos too. Take him out- just you and him and have a frank conversation. Understand what he likes and what he needs. He must be finding it difficult initially to cope. You could also hire a tutor so that he will study during that time. Set a routine with his ideas and inputs. Allot time slots for his daily task. Encourage and motivate him. Look at the situation from his perspective. Talk to him like adult to adult. Do not nag or stress him out. Similarly you would have to have a talk with your husband too. Both of you have to arrive at an understanding. Take the support of his teachers too. Have you considered shifting him to a school that would cater to his needs?
