Many children lack the skill and discipline to work in an organised, structured manner, let alone those who are overly active and get distracted easily.
So create a neat, organised and conducive space for the child for his homework. The best would be in the study, porch or bedroom; places where there are less distractions. The living and dining rooms are not such places.
Come up with simple and predictable routines from the moment he wakes. After school, always establish when to do homework, when to play, when to have dinner and what time to go to bed.
Use the clock extensively for your child to know when to transit to the next task.
