My child is unable concentrate while doing her daily studies. Her mind seems to wander and she is beginning to lose interest in her studies.

Brain is the centre of all learning and experiences and cognitive skills are the core skills required to process the information. Cognitive skills like Memory, Logical Thinking, Attention Span, Learning Ability are critical to performing any task, simple or complex.

Susmit, nisha... Ive tried all these, so getting impatient now.. that is why I shared here, looking for newer solutions. I've spoken to her again and relaxed back for sometime. My stress was passing on to her.. So it's only talking for a few days, no shouting,scolding, punishing etc. let's see how it turns out. Will share

Jyoti, have you tried sitting down with her and doing her studis like you would play a game? Give points to both yourselves like you'd play a game and tell her the winner gets an ice-cream, 30 minutes cartoons or chocolates. By the way, make sure she wins all the time - but do make it a tough competition. Create quizzes using the chapter - for example

Hi Jyoti, break her study time into smaller slots for eg: 20 mins to finish off the maths sums or drawing and keep a timer there. Between 2 slots give her a short 5-10 mins gap to refresh herself where she can have a snack or something to drink or u can chat with her. this may help.

Hi Jyoti, maybe you need to reduce her time and work more on doing quality work than quantity. Instead of one long hours study session, where she might get bored, break it up into 2 small sessions. Also, sit with her guiding her patiently and lovingly. when left to themselves, children's mind can wander off.
