This post “How to Improve a Child’s Focus” is designed to offer guidance to parents, teachers and sports coaches. Focusing is something most adults struggle with. So before we learn how to improve a child’s focus, we must understand it for ourselves. When it comes to focusing, the key is in the word.
In his book, the “ONE Thing,” Gary Keller brought about the focusing question.
“What’s the ONE Thing I can do such that by doing it, everything else will be easier or unnecessary?”
This question is often difficult to answer. How can we improve our focus is we live in an age of abundance and demand? How can we expect a child to focus?
We have unlimited choices. In one way, it’s very pleasant. From TV channels to a full wardrobe, who wouldn’t want that!
On the other hand, studies in “decision fatigue” suggests that having too much choice results in more exhaustion. This may impact the quality of our choices.
A demand for our attention starts from birth and escalates as a child ventures into adulthood. More homework, more exams and more chores.
A children are punished for a lack of focus despite their young brains being overwhelmed with tasks.
Scale and Priorities
Tim Ferris once said “If you don’t have time, you don’t have priorities.”
Initially, Play is crucial for developing motor skills, communication and creativity. This is the one priority of a toddler.
Priorities may be added sparingly. However, it is essential that a priority is added by itself, not with a bucket full of other tasks.
As a second priority, reading is ideal. Between reading and play, learning possibilities escalate!
