Are your kids losing interest in studies? Do they throw tantrum whenever you tell them to open the book? Are they struggling to do their homework on time?
Well, this story is common among most parents out there who are worried about their kid’s negligence towards study. They may even resort to strictness or rebuke which can worsen the matter.

Create a Study Schedule:
Firstly, set a study schedule for them. It should cover the time for homework, play, and rest intervals. You should encourage them to follow the schedule.
Make sure to arrange the schedule in a few sessions so that it doesn’t seem a burden.

Meet Their Teachers Very Often:
