What is concentration?
Do you know children who are fidgeting, getting bored or easily distracted, being unable to finish a simple task? Concentration is the ability to focus attention. And the simple truth is that children can concentrate – they just do it differently than adults. Their attention span is shorter. They like to have fun while fulfilling their tasks. Sometimes they just do not know the rules (or are too young to understand them).
How to improve childrens’ concentration?
You should take care of your child’s routine and good diet. Make sure you engage in sports and spend as little time as possible on electronic devices. And we have some great news! Do you know that playing and having fun is actually recommended to help increase children’s concentration? A good choice of toys and activities keep them interested and focused. And…. practise focusing to build attention but do it in the way that is fun. To play some games a right level of concentration is required so make sure you engage in activities that are chosen according to your child’s age and abilities. This way you will learn new things, train their skills and have so much fun while spending valuable time together.
