My daughter is in 8th standard now, till date she does self study. But for project studies, assignments, home work etc. She is very much dependent on gadgets/ Google. Sometimes she ends up with some entertaining stuff on gadgets. My question here is how to get rid of gadgets and how to make her think on her own. She always wants quick and easy ways to complete her work without wasting much time on thinking over it.

Even I give learning with gadgets, but we need to search and give her links. Just to open talk or understand the topic is good but taking notes and then explanation, i.e. self teaching and setting questions should be done. Time management learning is a very important part. Only then will they complete it within time.
