Hi,

 

My Son has just turned 5(today is his bday). Academically very brilliant. Can read all complex words also.Howver when i try to make him study he always wants breaks inbetween...say he wants to write a-z and then have a 10 mnts play break and then write 1-30 followed by a break...is this fine? i want him to sit at a strech for 30 mnts and study. But its getting very diff for me to do that. Please help!

  Hello,

HAPPY BDAY TO UR LITTLE ONE :)

Regarding ur query, I can say that u should not  worry...Your child is still too young to study on his own....attention spans are short at this age, say, 10 or 15 minute for maximum.

Some children are not ready for formal learning at 5. Children at this age did not have to study, but we need to introduce the lesson. There will be more play ....that's the way to educate children. Teach them with games, singing, storytelling, etc.

The absolutely best thing to do to turn your child on to learning is reading. Read to them as often as possible. There are loads of books for kids, traditional fairy tales & new, contemporary ones.

its perfectly normal, in fact good, to take a break like this. 30 minutes is too much for a 5 year old one. if he can focus for 15-20 minutes, its wonderful.
