hi I am mother of 7year daughter and 4year son. it's becoming difficult for me to handle both in studies side by side. how my problem can be solved.

hi neha, the best thing is to teach them at the same time ... but on two different sides that no one can distract the other. secondly give 10-15min break one by one in the meanwhile you can check the other's work and can answer to the query well. in this way no will feel neglected or more important. initially it will be difficult but somehow you will manage and so will the kids.

hi Neha Singla! I do understand your concern as I am also sailing in the same boat and my kids are also in the same age bracket. allot them separate study tables, place these in such a manner that they don't distract each other.. make a schedule for both . teach them at the same time or they would not be interested in studying and would be more concerned about what other one is doing. assign them work, which they need to finish within the stipulated time. check it immediately. whosoever finishes give him/her a 10 minutes break. continue teaching the other one and then give this child a break once work is finished. since ur daughter needs more attention being in higher class , give more timed assignments to her and make her revise work done in class everyday .your son attention span would be too short , so give small tasks to him and teach him in playeay manner. patience and reward would do wonders. on the other hand comparison , scoldings, shouting and negative feedback might work as demotivating factors. hope this helps!
