Have a few chats to find out the actual reason for his reluctance. Is it due to teachers or classmates ? Is he very shy? Is he experiencing any learning difficulty? Is he having friendship issues? Listen to him keenly when he talks about school. Understanding the trigger will help in solving. Generally children love school due to friends and games. So if he is avoiding there has to be a stronger reason. Some times there may not be a strong reason. Then it is a temporary phase. Yes the long hours are tiring. Send more snacks and water to keep him energetic. Going to school - this is non negotiable:). Persist in your routine. Allow him to have a nap or relax once he returns. Set a routine and allot time slot for all his tasks. Be patient and supportive. Give him incentives like a star when he completes daily task. Treat him to an extra hour of play when he gets 6 stars.
