  3. Place timers in all rooms: Have a big one in his study room. Offer him sufficient time for the homework and keep a watch on his activities.
  4. Rewards and punishments: Encourage him on times when he is sincere in his tasks and discourage him on other times. Offer him small rewards occasionally but do not make it a habit.
  5. Simplify his schedule: Do not burden him with too many assignments. Offer small breaks after a particular homework is completed, however this idle time should not be too long otherwise they are more likely to go with the play and their routine gets disturbed.
  6. Ensure he does not get distracted: A serene place for homework prevents distractions. This private place should be devoid of games, television, cell phones and people roaming around. It should be different from the place where he used to go for fun activities or play.
  7. Keep your home organized: Everything should have its own place and your child should be aware of all his belongings. Watching cleanliness will inculcate the habit of organization too.
  8. Cuddle your child: Spend 10 minutes every day with him while talking.
  9. Use relaxation techniques: It will minimize background noise as he goes to sleep.
  10. Make him spend time with nature: Let him interact and play with other children.
