hi Piyali ganguli ! I do comprehend your concern. u could immediately serve him lunch and make him sleep by 2. 30-3 pm and wake him up by 5 pm. 6. 30 pm is quite late.. send him out by 5. 30 he should be back by 6. 30 pm and then serve him dinner by 7. 30 and he should sleep by 9. 30 -10 pm.. since u have limited hours at hand ,u need to make the best of those.. pack some soaked and peeled almonds which he can have on his way to school . some handy stuff such as a cut fruit which he can during transition from one period to another.. healthy nutritious lunch and before he goes out to play again give him healthy snack. dinner again can be made nutritious by stuffing healthy Ingrdients . hope this helps!!

hi this is lakshmi... I also faced the same problem with my five yrs old kid... but now I am out of the problem. A simple tip m following.. if u let them to sleep in the afternoon more than one hour they could not sleep in the night early. So you can allow ur kid to sleep in the afternoon for one or two hours ...not more than that.. and let him play ...he will sleep early n wakeup early..
