We all agree, every parent wants all his/her children to succeed in school. However, for many kids and teens, concentration in this always-pressured, starved-for-time era can be difficult. This is why I am posting some tips for helping your son or daughter improve concentration and do better in the classroom:
* Take time for breakfast: Children who have breakfast and enough to eat during the rest of the day, is proven to be able to concentrate better in school, according to Head Start, the national child development program run by the Department of Health and Human Services.
* Introduce them to music: Playing instruments has shown to increase focus and concentration in other areas, so make them love playing and instrument.
* Provide a supplement: One product is Focus, from the “Spray” line of sublingual sprays that was developed by doctors. Focus is a combination of homeopathic remedies that can improve concentration, support memory and help overcome apathy. It acts gently, by causing no side effects and meets all FDA guidelines for good manufacturing practices. Seventeen-year-old Bianca attributes her first-ever “100” on an algebra exam to Focus. She says:”It worked so well at improving my concentration while studying and taking tests, my algebra grade went from D to B. My mom is very excited about my improvements, and my 16-year-old sister is now using the spray, too.” Send them to bed on time: Studies show that children and most teenagers concentrate best after about nine hours of sleep.
* Give them space: Your kids will be better able to concentrate on homework if they have a clear, uncluttered workspace. Turn off the TV, they won’t learn if they’re squeezing their homework in during commercials.
* Get them organized: Helping older students organize their assignments by recording them on calendars or planners, along with due dates and dates turned in is also a good tip.
* Discourage “cramming”: It increases anxiety and interferes with clear thinking, according to the Department of Education of the US. Kids do better on tests if they spread out studying over several days or weeks and can relate the information to what they already know.
