I am worried . please guide.child-psychology Corner
I understand your worry. Contrary to popular belief of sitting the child down and monitoring homework, you could focus in fostering independence in your child, and reaching out for help when in need while doing homework. Please find some handy tips here. https://www.parentune.com/parent-blog/home-work/119 Regarding nutrition kindly post a separate question to the nutrition corner. Also if she is showing resistance to writing then I suggest you consult a special educator for professional assessment and intervention in case she has any writing or reading difficulties. To inculcate books , first try to tell her stories; then read out a story everyday; read together and this gradually introduce books. It would also mean some effort on your part to read books too. When children see us interested in books they would develop the habit automatically. All the best.
