Hi UJala! I know what u r talking about and can relate to it very well. Household chores are never ending and can make you go bonkers. But for a second stop and give it a thought. We too have been there and done that as a child. If a child won't be stubborn and won't demand attention /love/ gifts or would do whatever he/she wants to , who would call him a child. Can u imagine at this age yourself doing all that what your kids have been doing?I guess the answer is 'No'. So relax. Work can be finished tomorrow but there is no tomorrow for childhood. Very soon they will become teenagers with a different set of issues. Yes, of course you want them to listen to u, but there are other ways to make them do so. Add "sweety " or "dear" to your child's name and say the same thing again by making an eye contact and gently stroking their hair Or kissing on their forehead or even hugging them. Saying nice things to them like "u have been really good today my angel","u make my day beautiful ". Infact, begin your day by hugging them and taking them in your lap. Even if they take a moment longer to listen to u, it doesn't matter. These moments won't come back so cherish them and celebrate their childhood by watching them enjoy it. Believe u me , they will be thankful to u for the rest of their lives for this. Hope this helps!

Hi Ujala, For this age group, the word "study" or "homework" would sound boring. Focus on developing her interest in learning rather than making her complete the homework. Try to invent a game or do it differently which doesn't need paper or pen. If she likes playing, use playful activities. For e. g use playing cards to learn Sequencing, comparing numbers, addition, subtraction. remove all the picture cards, and distribute the remaining cards equally between you and your child. For addition or subtraction, each of you take a turn to drop 2 cards and the other person finds the answer. Or play "go fish" by fixing a number value and do addition or subtraction using each of your cards. To learn to make words, use the fridge magnets. and ask her to form the words using magnets to spell the word or you can also use the alphabet stamps and inkpad to write the spelling. Cut out alphabets from newspaper and form sentence. Or cut out picture of objects from newspaper/magazines and make sentences by replace the words by pictures. Ask your child to read the sentence and also spell the word for that object that is in the picture. use match sticks and play dough to make geometrical shapes. Use a custom made dice with values 5,+10,-10,+15, -15, 20,30 etc. Take turns to roll it to move the minute hand in a clock to reach a designated time It's a fun activity to learn time. Try to invent some game for each and every activity which can be followed by a little writing of her homework. This will keep up her interest and motivate her. Hope this helps.

Yes, I do understand ujala but don't worry. Deal with her in her own way. Set time for playing and studying, more for playing less for studying at first. Then set goals for her, 'if you learn this then we'll play that game'. If she did her homework, behave like she has done great job, keep encouraging her. If you give importance to her interests then she'll start listening to you slowly. But remember being angry and comparison will always worsen the situation

Be patient, being angry won't help. Bring her some colourful number and alphabet games. Encourage her more for even small achievements(like learning to write alphabet or number). Don't try to correct her everytime, it's ok if she does something wrong. Don't force her when she is not in mood. Indulge with her in games and activities, tell her stories and slowly counsel her n explain the importance of learning
