Hi Sabiha!


It appears that your child is not enjoying studies, to an extent looks disinterested in the same.

You would need to understand a little more in-depth with the help of her teacher at schools and from her friends at school and in the neighbourhood. Some time it is about just getting bored or

not being able to find interest in studies, from a child's perspective. In that case, one needs to balance between being assertive and being encouraging. You could try the following:


1. Agree on a time duration every day for your child to play and study. The only boundary condition being that the two need to be equal.

2. The days when she does well, you could reward her by letting her watch and extra 30 minutes over and above the time she studied. Thus creating a cycle, where in she understands better at studies means more fun and not viceversa.

3. You could also introduce her to games related to studies on the mobile, install them on your mobile, and help her discover it, and may be even tally her score with you/others.


More than anything else, don't lose patience with her. Hope this helps!
