my 6 years 8 months daughter ( class 2)seems to. be very intelligent and learns very quickly when I make her study else she wont touch the books on her own. and doesn't have any interest I studies. she is getting excellent marks as forcefully I make her study. Since her brother is born 2 months before, the works ahe used to do on her own also, she has started asking to me to do for her and as I am occupied, she is not studying. that is landing in shouting and beating her a lot and she is becoming scared day by day but still do not study on her own. and started crying whole day . days are becoming tough with my 2nd child as I have to awake in the night as well. Don't know what to do. pl suggest.

It is difficult for her to start studying on her own as she is used to having you around. It is important to train her step by step to study on her own. She is only 6 years and it will be impossible for her to sit for hours studying. What you can do is tell her to study for 10 mins on her own and then 10 mins you can check if what she has studied is okay, you could also break up the studies into smaller chucks like do 3 sums and show me, then next 3 sums and so on. Slowly you can increase the number of sums per chunk and the amount of time she can study by herself. Training her this way step by step will help her inculcate the habit of studying alone rather than asking her to suddenly do the entire thing by herself. Also every time she does some studies even if it is 10 min or one question on her own then you can praise her for it. This will increase her confidence and self-esteem and she will try to do more of the same. This blog on parentune will give you more information. Take care
