Irresponsible Child

by shailja minocha

My son is 9 and half years old and I consider him to be an irresponsible child in some ways. For instance, he does not pay attention to the instructions given by me, although academically, he is very good. There are no complaints from his school.

The problem is that if I say wash your hands and eat, he will wash his hands after at least 5 to 10 minutes (wasting time by roaming here and there) until I scold him for what he is doing. This type of attitude is the same for taking a bath, getting fresh in the morning and so on. Please advise.
