How to teach my boy to become more focused in studies?
Hello, How to teach my boy to become more focused in studies? He is 7 years old and extremely active. I believe that all kids can learn strategies and engage in practices that help improve their ability to focus and sustain their attention. Please provide me some useful tips.
@bithika Concentration is a lot like mindfulness, a concept that has been receiving quite a bit of attention lately in psychology and in popular culture. Mindfulness is basically the ability to pay attention to one thing in the moment, and it has been shown to have innumerable mental health benefits, from increased happiness and stress management to improved academic and test performance. For mindfulness to work, you have to focus. Young children (age 4-5) can usually concentrate for somewhere between 5 and 20 minutes, depending on the task—less time with novel and challenging tasks, and more time with those intrinsically enjoyable activities.
