Hi Aparna,

    In this competitive world, Academics are really important. But there are other fields in which your  kid might be interested in. Talk to him and get to know his interests. Take him to a Counselor. Check in his school how his teachers and friends are with him. Whether any incident happened in school which has affected him. Rather than books, get him lot of other activities thru' which he can play and learn. Lots of  CDs are available that teach children in a fun way. Get him scrabble that will increase in English skills. Some kids like the play way method and it makes learning more interesting. Send him to Yoga or Karate or music classes that would increase his concentration and memoty power. Please talk to your Kid in a calm way and ask him to tell his problems to you. In this way, your Kid will defnitely do better. Please be patient with your kid and work things out together in a creative and fun way.    All the best for you and your kid.

Hi Aparna,

I think geetharma gave a nice idea.... be patient. Beating a small kid can't be the solution for this problem. May be he is also feeling very sad as from friends and family he is loosing hope. So talk to him calmly.

Just one suggestion, have you heard about dyslexia? Your problem is sounding similar to that. You may go through the site mentioned ( If you think this looks familiar to you, you may proceed further.
