Root cause analysis – My son is 9 years old. For the last few months he was not finishing his lunch box in school. I scolded him for this and asked him to strictly finished his lunch box. But later I found that in spite of finishing he started hiding his lunch box food in bag or throwing under the bed such as parathas. Then I did the root cause analysis of his problem and I found that it was the parathas which he was not eating in school. Now I started giving him rice dishes instead of parathas. And I got positive result. Now he finishes his lunch in school.
This what I do with my son. Every day in morning I tell him to focus and behave properly in school. I always tell him that if he did any mistake then tell me first, so that I can help him.
