Original Question via Email:
I have a son, aged 7 years. The problem is, during study time he becomes restless and divert his mind to something else. This also happens during music class, abacus class as well. Sometimes, we loose our temper and scold him. Later on we feel sorry for our behavior.
We are not very ambitious parents, but we want him study on regular basis. Please suggest us how to deal with the child.
We have watched many videos of your's and we like all of them.

Topic: How to best guide your child at young age? How to improve their study and concentration?, in a Balanced way.
First: General Advice
As you may observe, today's children are prone to diverge their mind from study, because Science has given many instruments, especially mobile - which is very dangerous also. Children can access the entire world of information with that small device. This information can be negative. So parent's responsibility is to save their children from such technology.
Yes, mobile is useful. But only to some extent which is needed. You MUST first teach the child - How to use the resources (in general - all resources)
Second - About Studies
The power of concentration of mind is most important for studies. Hence this power should be empowered. Concentration is achieved only when there is no distractions or when we are doing what we love the most. Hence if you can develop the love of knowledge and study in the mind of your children, then this is your success. Know that most of successful scholars and scientists had love for what they were doing and hence they can focus on their research for any long. This is the KEY for success - Concentration power.
Every child is different. We call a child - to a Soul who have a small body and small organs. They may not properly express what they wish to do in life. Hence parents are there for them. Parents should think for the child's happiness also. As time is going, education system has given a big burden to small children and almost killed their innocence.
Remember, before only few decades (50 years ago), world was much better. Children were 'children'. Innocence, playful and happy. The real meaning of education is - HOW TO THINK?
Studies is important for mental growth and playing is important for physical and emotional growth. This is our opinion.
Based on this understanding, you can lovefully guide your child towards studies.
Give him a good time for playing outside or watching cartoon. Playing chess is also a game and also a way of improving concentration power. Then after tell him to study. Love can only transform, not scolding. This is a balanced way of living.
Children are like a wet mud. As you shape them now, they will remain for their entire life. So be very careful what you teach them NOW.
