Routine and structure alone can bring about good habits. Use alarms as reminders. please set a proper routine. Routines help children and they need routines. Allow him to play after he returns for 1 hour. Set a time period to study for 1-1.15 hours. 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. There are ways to study smartly: 1. Follow a consistent study time. revise the topic on Day 1,2,5,7,15,30 2. Writing out the key words of answers will help. 3. Studying for time slots of 45 minute-5 minute break will help. 4. Ask your child to teach you the topic. Suggest group study on some weekends. Try these concentration techniques: 1. Ask him to circle the letter 'e' from a passage. 2. If he likes to listen to music, play an instrumental piece and ask him to listen the non dominant instrument. 3. Doing a puzzle/ scrabble/ crossword. 4. Colouring/painitng 5. Spotting differences in pictures. During the 5 min break he can walk out to balcony ,get fresh air, or stretch. During longer breaks he can do one of the above techniques.
