my son Is 5 years and 7 months now. He is not showing very keen interest in studying. I admit because I was very good in studies myself I expect him to be good at it too . He looks distracted and doesn't want to write. He feels overburdened when asked to complete his homework. I am a working mother and on weekdays hardly get to spend 2 hours with him. He gets angry and reacts by hitting though I have always been patients and explained him about this unacceptable behaviour. How do I teach him the importance of education and discipline in life. Kindly advice

Sujatha he needs your attention and share of exclusive time. Even that 2 hours should be quality time with him. He needs to know he is supported and loved unconditionally. You cannot expect him to be like you because he is an individual by himself. Appreciate his strengths. Reward good behaviour. Parents are the primary teachers. So Children role model what we do hence we need to model the behaviour we expect. First break the ice with him. Win over totally with patience and care. Your journey with him should be great then.
