Tips to Help Your Child Further Develop Their Focus and Concentration Skills

If your child has a hard time staying concentrated while working, use these tips to help them increase their focus and concentration skills.

Incorporate Physical Activity

If your child has a hard time staying focused on completing tasks after school, incorporating physical activity into their daily routine can help. Have some kind of outdoor activity set up for them to welcome them home from school. This can help them release any pent up energy that can turn into a distraction. You can also break up their homework time into chunks, taking breaks for small activities every so often.

Remove Distractions

Distractions, whether visual, physical, or auditory, can cause anyone to lose their concentration. Help your child stay focused by removing items that are clear distractors for them. Often, electronics are some of the biggest distractors for children. Do your best to keep the television off, video games put away, and cell phones in another room while your child is working. Keeping things tidy can also help your child stay concentrated. Try scheduling a weekly day for decluttering your child's work area to help them stay focused as they work.

Play Memory Games

Memory games are a great tool for increasing concentration. Not only are they fun, but they can also help your child increase a vital skill. Playing a game that requires your child to match cards or follow directions won't seem academic, but can be a great way to boost focus and concentration skills. Another great aspect is that you won't need to purchase anything. You can make your own matching cards at home or play a game like Simon Says.
