Improve Your Child's Attention Span

These days few are immune from the relentless distractions that daily life throws at us. From ubiquitous marketing campaigns to quick-hitting digital entertainment, the competition for our limited amount of attention is stiffer than ever. Children are particularly susceptible to this onslaught of information, and it's critical that they develop proper methods of dealing with it from the time they are young. Keeping your kid organized and able to properly prioritize competing interests have been shown to be key to his or her future success, both scholastically and in the real world. The following are a few helpful tips on how you can increase your child's attention span:

Exercise

Several studies have demonstrated that exercise causes neurogenesis (growth of new neurons) in the brain, and one corollary of such growth is a heightened ability to reason and focus.

Memorize things

Tasking your young one with certain responsibilities, for example, memorizing the grocery list, has been shown to go a long ways toward improving attention span.

Read books

In order to contrast the rapid-fire inundation of information we are accustomed to these days, give your child a novel to read--preferably something that aligns nicely with his or her interests. Reading a book of considerable length is a marathon, not a sprint, and your child's attention span will benefit accordingly.
