Psychiatrist 's  Response
In a 12 years old the reasons for lack of concentration and poor in studies may be: 1. a part of inability to adjust psychologically between normal biological changes of adolescence versus expectation from the environment, 2. any family disturbance, 3. peer bully at school or any problem at school 4. not finding the subjects interesting other than math, apart from less possibility of adolescent depression or any core psychiatric illness. For definitive suggestion talking to the girl and her parents, face to face or by live chat will do the needfull. Dr Vijaya of Institute of mental health, chennai can be contacted. for further clarification, u can be in touch with me
