Studying on time !!
1. how do i get my child to study responsibly and on time?
2. how do i get my child to feel bad when he gets bad grade so that he decides to make some changes in his study patterns?
My child takes about 45mins-1 hr to finish a burger, about 40mins to shower, approx 20mins to rinse his hands with soap. No amount of coaxing or timeouts or cancelled-privileges makes any difference in this habit.
My son hates to read and hence does not like to look up/ clarify doubts on the web (for eg finding out the capital of California, definition of high tide and low tide). He prefers to ask me his doubts and if i'm unable to explain then he wont go to the trouble of reading up on it to find out.
Also, he has a nonchalant attitude about his tests n quizzes that come up and doesnt want to prepare well in advance. When he studies well, he does get an A. But most of the time he barely passes the tests. He isnt worried about getting bad grades. He is very perceptive and intelligent if he wants to. He can understand/ solve a math problem if he "wishes" to, coz he is good in math but doesnt do anything to improve on it.
Please help ! I know i am doing something wrong in my approach. He is a very calm and loving child... likes electronic games and cartoons. Nature-wise he is wonderful and very religious and caring too.
I am only worried about his education
