Please suggest how to increase concentration for my 9 year kid studying in Hyderabad. She used to be very sharp but from past 1 year she is not at all interested in any learning.

1. Get it in her head that’s she’s a great learner and student. Help her see herself that way. Avoid anything that feels like a bad label.
2. This is normal. Give HER tips on how to reward herself for concentrating. Like after 30 minutes or a few pages of homework, she can take a break for 10 minutes. You teach her how to reward herself.
3. Sit down with her and help her get started if she’s overwhelmed.
4. Create a trigger like putting on noise, canceling, headphones, or listening to ambient music to get her in the mood for concentration.
5. Model focus and concentration yourself by reading and doing work you don’t want to do.

Is she depressed? Depression affects concentration and memory among other things like a lack of interest in activities once liked.

Why do we have to label kids with some mental health issues always? Her daughter is bored and its proven kids can not be drones and sit for 7 hours a day learning boring things. Or their family life is really at the root of their depression because their parents are nihilistic (no saying this is OP at all).

A 9 year old is just learning how to focus and needs to build that muscle. It might not be ADHD. Even if it is, it would my last resort to give my kid stimulants to concentrate.

Making learning interesting outside of the just using books will peak the interest of a 9 year old. If you keep a routine of the same kind of studying, they will get bored. You have to think of ways to escape that boredom

Public school somehow managed to get even worse than it was in the 90s. I was bored and unhappy in elementary school and I would bet most of us were if we really think about it. The teachers will likely recommend an IEP and other BS to point the finger at the child instead of taking any accountability for their broken system. Chances are she is bored by the constant behavioral issues that need to be addressed, not being challenged, and doesn't see the point. Try spending 30min in the morning and evening going over things like reading, phonics, and show her how you use those things.

Take her to the grocery store and start asking her the price of things and if you are getting multiple of them ask what the total will be for those items. Make sure she gets plenty of exercise, knows how to make a healthy meal and has a lot of time to play. She will learn more from that than the government provided daycare.... I mean "school"

It’s actually pretty hard to get an IEP. Teachers can’t just recommend it.

Tell me if this is selfish or not. I adore my family, but since they're doing a very lowkey Christmas situation this year, I really would rather take a weeks vacation on my own. Obviously the holidays are about spending time with those you love, but I'm tired! And I see my entire family at least once a month for a group dinner. Am I a bad daughter/sister if I choose vacation this one time?

Did any of you get a dog in your early 20s while living here? How hard was it? I currently live with my SO and have been wanting one for awhile but just nervous about if something were to change in my life. Right now it would be super easy as we’re both WFH. But obviously I’m young, things could change, and we’ll likely be going back to work at some point…i would think. Plus in a normal world we go out on weekends. We have plenty of ppl to care for the dog while we travel so that isn’t a concern

How do you all feel about splitting vacations 50/50 in a relationship and dates 60/40? I might be old fashioned but this rubs me the wrong way. I feel like I have to work 2x as hard to be taken seriously at work as a woman and pay for all kinds of crap like hair appts, nails, makeup, outfits to be viewed positively by men. Not to mention, expensive birth control, periods, and eventually potentially having a child. 50/50 makes me feel like a friend and not that valued. Thoughts?

This is a life question - my husband has a child from a previous relationship. She’s 15 now. She randomly left last year to live with her mom - I’m talking very random, unexpected, blindsided, cover of darkness type stuff. He was obviously traumatized, tried to get her back, lots of untrue accusations were flung from that camp - it was very shocking as a “third party” to see how dirty the other side was willing to play. We gave up. They’ve had 0 contact for over 6 months. (Continued)

I started dating this guy some months before covid struck.. he was literally crazy about me. He even stayed in Hyderabad for months just so that we could meet once before he went on to stay with his family. After that it had been a real roller coaster. He pampered me a lot before and now he hardly talks. We both have switched to different companies (earlier were in the same) and now he works 6 days a week. Sleeps or Vists his relatives or works on Sundays. Sometimes I feel he no longer loves me.
