Our successes in life depend, mostly, on how focus we are on things we do. Whether in the home doing housekeeping, at work doing the job we are receiving compensation to do, or at school learning for academic success and the same goes for a child. So you see, concentration is important and the best time to learn and build the culture of focusing is at younger ages.
Therefore, teaching your child how to focus on their learning is important; below are tips to improve your child’s focus for a life full of accolades.
- Start your child with task appropriate for their age
Everyone including adults would do better when they confront tasks within their maturity level and same goes for your child. Give your child a task appropriate for her age; it should not be a task too easy or one that is too hard for what she can comprehend as she learns.
While she’s at it, you need to find the time to be by her letting her know the importance of her being able to complete the task within the given time. Also, give her a reason to focus and be successful in completing the assignment.
- Establish a regular and appropriate time for learning
A child’s upbringing takes focus and dedication on the part of parents to set their foot on the right path. Therefore, you need to teach your child consistency and let her know there is time for everything in life. Establishing a time to study gives a kid the idea it’s time to study and with time, she gets use to that.
When a child knows she’s going to study for 30 minutes between 5.00 and 5.30 pm every day, she will look forward to that. As parents, you need to create a balance for your child in all things she does, and doing so will enhance her focus.
- Teach by example, avoid distractions yourself
As parents developing your child to concentrate, you will achieve a better result if you lead by example, avoiding distractions yourself. For the 30 minutes, you will be with her, turn off the television, your cell phone, and music and let her know why you did that.
The point is, kids learn more from our actions, the unspoken body languages they pick up quickly. So when you turned off the TV at the time, your favorite program is on air, and concentrate on teaching her, she knows the learning is more important.
- Reward your child being productive and obedience
Children love fun and food, while you can’t deny them all of those, you can tie the rewards to another activity that would help in your focus build methods, the martial art club membership.
Martial art is a good place to develop a child’s concentration in an atmosphere of fun. She’s in a place where other children are equally striving for success; they are exercising for physical and mental fitness to give them an edge in life.
Membership of a martial art club will build discipline and energy to catapult your child to a level of high ability to focus on set tasks as she grows.
Kids are precious gifts and free by nature, but we need to shape them into what we want them to be, to fit well in the society we dream. Giving a child the time required to teach them how to focus on the task at hand takes knowledge, dedication, and love.
