She has entered her teens so there will be resistance. You can try these: 1. Sit down with her when she is in a good mood. Plan a timetable using her ideas. 2. After school she can be allowed to play or watch tv for an hour . Give her some good snacks. After this she can use the time table 3. An example of a time table that children normally like is when they get breaks in between. 4. So let her study for 45 minutes and then take a break for 10 minutes. 5. If she does not like to sit and study, you can find out what she has learnt at school and play a quiz on the lesson. 6. Ask her to teach you the topic. 7. Making her studies like a game will help. Try these concentration techniques: 1. Ask her to circle the letter 'e' from a passage. 2. If she likes to listen to music, play an instrumental piece and ask her to listen the non dominant instrument. 3. Doing a puzzle/ scrabble/ crossword. 4. Colouring/painting 5. Spotting differences in pictures. All the best and do keep us posted.
