hi Payal! I absolutely understand your concerns. have been there and done that. i too have two girls with almost same age Gap . Payal u would be required to juggle between home , 2 kids, elders one's studies along with other responsibilities. it's advisable to plan the day in such a manner that u r able to pay attention to elder one when your lil one is sleeping . if you are in a joint family set up then a grandparent can take care of your lil one , once he is fed.. also try and teach your elder one self studying by assigning him work which u can correct as soon as u get time in between. u could explain a concept and give him one or two examples and he could carry on. once your lil is sleeping and elder one is in school u could make test papers for him, which he can do after is thorough with concepts . mark syllabus he is supposed to cover on that particular day. thay way u will save lot of time. hope this will be of help to u!

Thank you Shikha. Yes we do stay in joint family but my mother in law has passed away so I am the only lady in the family. Would try to make schedules for the elder ones studies as suggested by you. Thank you so much
