I understand your concern. Times are tough as there is so much uncertainty around each one of us. And everyone of us are trying to get in regular routines with so much changes to be made in our day to day activities. And with kids staying home all day school closed, no parks, no sunday outings it has become frustrating for them. So we as an adult need to understand the problems they are facing in adjusting to new normal. It becomes our responsibility to become patient and calm ourselves down. It is no use being angry with him. Instead you have to develop lot of patience. Teach him using different methods - make learning interactive and interesting. Use worksheets. You can contact school teachers and ask them to keep small play sessions for kids online so that the monotony of online classes break and they start enjoying them. Routines help children . Set a time period to play, study.Be gentle and firm that he has to follow the routine. When he completes studying or writing give him a sticker. When he gets 5/7 stickers for example give him a reward. Please be patient and give him lots of love and affection. Slowly all this routine will help. I hope these give you some ideas. Take Care
