My son is in 9th standard. He does not take interest in studies. He is only interested in playing vedio games. Though he is a good learner and scores decent grades but i am worried as he himself never take any initiative to study.

This is a concern for many parents. At this age he is in his adolescence so he will try to establish autonomy. There is also peer pressure. Be firm about your rules. Talk to him about it. Allow him to make his own time table to study, for play and for Internet/vidoe games. Let it not go beyond an hour. Monitor his usage. The computer /game must be in a place where you can see what he is surfing/playing. Set the penalty for disobeying too .Remove a privilege if he disobeys. When he sees that you mean what you say then he will change .. You have to remind him about who is in charge at home. Children at this age need authority but tinged with understanding.
