8 Ways To Help Your Child Concentrate And Focus

If your child is struggling to concentrate and focus at school or at home, then these 8 ways to help your child concentrate and focus are worth a read.  I have excerpted two of my favourite points about nutrition and exercise – both of which I’m a huge advocate.  I believe everyone should exercise regularly/daily, not just kids, and I think it’s particularly important that kids are fed the right types of food so they get a head start in life.

8 Ways To Help Your Child Concentrate And Focus

Promote a healthy diet— Nowadays, children have an increased intake of processed foods, saturated fats and sugary foods. Studies have shown that a diet rich in whole grains, fruits and veggies will help your child’s brain functions. As well, studies have shown that parents should shy away from foods that have food colouring in them, as they may increase hyperactivity in children.

Exercise more often—Both mental and physical exercise are very important to help your child concentrate better. For mental exercises, try playing board games that stimulate your child to think strategically and focus. Guessing games or even allowing them to help you cook by reading or following recipes. For physical exercise, it has been scientifically proven that children that do at least 30 minutes of exercise per day are more likely to do well in school, focus better and generally be more positive.

Of these 8 ways to help your child concentrate and focus I also like the point about controlling TV and the use of video games.  When I was a kid, my parents didn’t allow me to have a games console and I’m highly grateful for that.  I was encouraged to be outdoors, learn musical instruments, take up sports and socialise with friends.  Nowadays kids are spending hours a day on pointless games consoles that I’m sure are not doing their brains any favours.  What do you think?
