Dear Parent! Children are always in a hurry to finish off work so that they can continue playing. So either they wud do the assigned work in a jiffy or would not study at all. They need lot of motivation to sit down n study. So we need to make studies interesting for them. This can be done by teaching things in a play way method. For example alphabets can be taught by showing picture books, charts, blocks etc. u can start with writing of one alphabet sayA. For one week show him pictures of objects with A like aero plane, ant, axe, etc. teach the sound it makes. Tell him the names of people known to him whose name start with A. Talk about the food he likes that starts with A. So we need to follow the pace with which child can grasp and make teaching learning an interesting process by giving examples from day to day life so that it does not become a burden n a boring activity for the person who is teaching n the student. Secondly r tone should be not such that the child gets the message that something unpleasant is gonna happen. He shd get the inkling that studying is a fun time activity. Thirdly be as motivating as possible. Good, awesome, mind blowing,excellent etc are the words which excite children r they are always eager to grab them. so shower ur child with such words and love is d ingredient which is important to make any recipe yummiest. So do not forget to hug, kiss, pat, clap for ur child. All D best.

i hv son(3. 5yrs)... hvng same case as hers... it took 6 months to handle him nd mke him sit at one place.... i try to make his study fun ways.... but whn he nt in mood.. i leave him immediately.. as child find studies as burden.... if he doesnt want to study by books... i play cartoon n discuss many thngs.. n through laptop... i show him children movies... images n many more thngs... n discuss... n co-related with books... trust me.. its nt an easy job... gather all your patience n plan n start ur job. Earlier i used to think... he will learn his own.. but every child is different... some needs help to learn..... All the best.

Dear Sureka, i mostly agree with both the fellow parents here, each child is different in its own way and it is very natural at this age for a child to not want to sit in one place and do as required. The trick as the other parents have suggested is not to make the whole process seem really constricting. It is simple if the child feels engaged and excited the most probable reaction is interest in the activity. Also with time all children are able to channelize their energies in a constructive manner and your son will also get there with your abundant love and support. For now you could adopt one of the many interesting suggestions given here and of course enjoy your son to the fullest.

hi surekha... i totally understand ur state of mind at dis point of time. Kids r fussy no doubt. which level does ur son study in? Nursery or Junior? Coz at d age of 3. 3 writting dosent come so early. so but obvious if ur child is not enough ready for writting then he wil suerly make a fuss abt it. if writting is not compulsary in school then u cn tk practice at hom but not wit pencil n paper. fill large plate wit uncooked rice n make him draw alphabets, patterns or pics in tat. u cn tk anything for tat like flour or different types of grains. or u cn sharpen his motor skills by making him sort them out if u cn mix them. let him hv d feel of different things or objects at hom. u cn also play alphabet recognising games like.... make chits of alphabets n let him pik one n u guess or vice versa. same wit numbers. Point out persons whose name begins wit d letter taught. Like S for Surekha. tey remember it well. Or u cn play d memory game.... Mommys name starts wit which letter. Most imp hv loads of patience coz every child is different. Best of Luck!!

I agree with NEha! Not all children can write at tis age. My daughter could write both small as well as capital letters by age 3. 5 years. I used to teach same thing using different methods like using blocks, picture cards, picture books, internet, making crafts. We used to study everyday. Repitition was d mantra. I had bought one white board with different colored marker pens. My daughter used to love writing on it. I started with tracing dots. N gradually moved to three lines as given in English books. now at the age of 4 years she can read and write 3 letter words. so just wait for the right moment. U keep trying if the child is prepared for writing he wud do so soon.
