Answer:
Routines help children and they need routines. Allow him to play after he returns for 1 hour. Allot time for entertainment or free time too. Set a time period to study for 1-1.15 hours. In this period allot 20 min studying, 5 min break slots. Be gentle and firm that he has to follow the routine. When he completes studying or writing give him a sticker. When he gets 7 stickers give him a reward. Please be patient and give him lots of love and affection. Slowly all this routine will help. Do not stop or change his book reading. You could definitely limit the screen time.
