Kids are not BRISK
Created by Updated on Jul 11, 2014
Hello Parents, Recently i have noticed my 4. 5 year son Adithya is developing less interest,no briskness and a clumsy nature while going to school. I can understand if its after a long break or on a Monday,but he is almost all days like this. He doesn't have that liveliness and enthusiasm. Does anyone have any insights. Regards, Suraj

Hey suraj! I understand your worry. While Adithya may look disinterested, You may want to check if this is a case of being tired or the weather issues. Also-do check with his teacher and a few classmates about what's happening at the school/classroom. Is he feeling left out in some way.... has he got some good friends in the class? You may be surprised to find that the real reason may be completely different. Independent of the reason, keep talking to him and keep being supportive and encouraging. Make your time with him full of liveliness and enthusiasm. Hope to hear from you soon.

Thanks a lot for your valuable inputs. He like me is an introvert but is full of enthusiasm when he plays in our apartment park with his friend. As you said, it is very specific when going to school. I probably might have to check with his teachers and friends about his school activity.

Hi Suraj, If you have noticed this behaviour particularly when he is going to school, you might also consider adjusting his sleep cycle. Maybe he sleeps late in the night or watches TV till bedtime. Both these can disturb the restful sleep and the child will wake up tired in the morning. Ensure he gets good sleep, a fulfilling (but to his taste) breakfast and you may be able to partly catch the problem. Hope this helps.
