Many kids have trouble staying focused during an activity or while doing homework. Whether they’re working on an art project or studying for a test, here are a few tips to help your child stay engaged:
- Create an environment free from distractions (ie: television is turned off, etc.)
- Reward their success – Agree to do something fun once they have completed their task.
- Get involved – If there’s a way to do the activity together, join the fun! There are tons of activities parents can do with their children including: reading, arts and crafts, and even studying.
