Please never scold him ......better nurture his free child .... probably you are his hero and he wants to reach your level of music expertise ....please don't take it as his stubborness but better inspire him and teach him how to play these sensitive instruments ..... once you start scolding him , he will go into the status of indifference and will have a mental block ....may be he can be a rebellious child in future ...be a friend , philosopher and guide to him ...... and buy him a Mridangam .... you never know he can be a child prodigy artist
in very near future ...... hope that much you can afford for your little master

Take him to a playground and play with him till he is exhausted. He is hyper energetic and needs to release his high energy levels. This is resulting in destructiveness. Sitting at home and expecting to solve the "problem" shall lead to more damage - today tabla, tomorrow the furniture.

Yes Kids are like that.we need patience to make them understand what is suitable and good for them.if he is interested in percussion instruments,you can take him to a good teacher.there,with Kids of his same age, he will slowly become aware of whether its enjoyable or difficult to him.or divert his mind by giving something else or plan a small one day tour for him.anyway all the best for Little Vishal !!

What's the age of your child, because if he has broken so many tablas, it means he is too small and can be easily goaded into buying some cheaper variety of mridangam
