My son is in tenth class now. But he is not interested in studies. He is arguing in every thing.

He is now a teen so his interests will change. Make a weekly ritual of taking him out on walks or car drives. Build an open communication with him. Listen to him. Understand his strengths and weaknesss and work on them. Help him to set goals and break them into smaller achievable ones. Lack of interest in study could be because he is not strong in his oconcepts or he is underachieving due to which he is low in self esteem. Often parental anxiety may turn the child off from studies because children fear they can't face the pressure or meet the standard. Hence understanding his fears will help. Brainstorm with him for solutions. Be patient and supportive. Routines help children and they need routines. Allow him to play or relax after he returns for 1 hour. Set a time period to study for 1-1.15 hours. In this period allot 20 min studying, 5 min break slots. Be gentle and firm that he has to follow the routine. When he completes studying or writing give him a sticker or a star. When he gets 7 stickers give him a reward. Please be patient in carrying out the routine. Slowly all this routine will help. I hope these give you some ideas.
