Math help in Missouri City, TX

02/09/2015
Here at The Tutoring Center in Missouri City, TX, we try to keep distractions to a minimum while your child is being tutored. But, with all the distractions in school and at home, it isn't easy to focus on a task for any length of time. Focus and concentration is a critical life skill. Here are a few tips to help your child learn to concentrate. 

Setting the Right Skill Level for Your Child.

One of the reasons children lose focus on a task is because it's either too easy or too hard for them. Make sure the activity is age appropriate for your child. Although explaining to your child that sometimes in life we all have things we must do that are boring or tedious, will help him understand that not all things are fun and games. You also might want to point out that the sooner he completes the task, the sooner he can do more enjoyable things.

Break a Big Project into Smaller Tasks

Big projects can be overwhelming. A good way to help your child's concentration is to take a big project and split it up into small pieces. We have all had that feeling, "I don't even know where to start." Working on smaller tasks of a large project will give your child a feeling of progress as each task is completed.

Sleep and Healthy Foods

Huge factors to help your child concentrate is making sure he gets enough sleep and eats right. Being tired and eating a carb-heavy diet will make him too sleepy to focus. Fresh fruits and vegetables will make a difference in your child's performance.

Play Memory Games

With practice, your child can experience longer periods of concentration. Play memory games with your child often. It's a great way to increase his focus and have fun at the same time.
