Dear Yogita, Have you tried to ask him why he does not like school? is it because of bullying or teasing by friends or teachers? Please go to his school and find out from his teachers if he is facing any difficulty at school. Does he have any reading/ writing/spelling difficulty? How is his self esteem? Are you giving enough attention? Alternatively you can do this: Set a routine for him. Involve him in setting time for play,study, meal, bath etc. Plan a time table for the week. Set small treats if he follows the rules. Plan 20 minutes of your time talking to him; take him to for a walk or to the park. He is definitely stressed about something. Be firm in your rules. Use a firm tone. Do not nag or yell. Understand from his viewpoint. Set penalty for disobeying or aggression by removing a privilege.
