hi Renu! I completely understand your concerns. we need to be innovative in looking for ways to motivate him to study. first and foremost have a fixed routine for him in which there is time allotted for studies, rest as well as play. make sure the time allotted for studies is such that your lil one is either sleeping or there is someone to look after her. when u begin teaching him, plan small targets and give him breaks in between. make sure u r being patient and praising him all this while. stars, smileys, 15 minutes extra of play would further motivate him. the activity based plans, such as for teaching addition u could bring real objects and let him add with and without regrouping. or u could give examples from day to day life. once he has done a particular subject give him 15/20 minutes break. then start afresh with next subject. with your praise , attention , innovative ways and fun element added to activities and above all your love he would come around. hope this will help!

hi again! Renu make sure u don't follow the same plan everyday. give him Multiple choice question paper on some days which he could do in 15 to 20 minutes Maximum. this will give a break from regular studies and will also give u some idea of how much he has grasped and clarity of concepts. on other days u could do some practical experiments like in case of teaching the concept of weight (heavy and light), Air: it could be taught using candle and water and a glass. this will not only arouse his curiosity and catch his attention but also give him hands on which promotes learning. if u have taught him a chapter from book make sure next subject has some activity planned. also keep asking relevant questions in between to keep him attentive . don't forget to praise him and reward him with smileys and hugs. this should of help to u!
