Science-Based Parenting Strategies for a Stronger Attention Span
This is one of the most common concerns that parents raise about their child’s development. Our ability to pay attention is a skill. Both adults and children are having an increasingly difficult time paying attention and sustaining attention, thanks particularly to our modern lifestyle with heavy technology use. And we can only expect this to worsen.
Having a solid attention span and focus is necessary for staying on task, successful learning, deep thinking and problem-solving. Like the muscles in our body, our attention and focus “brain muscle” can be strengthened through exercises, daily experiences and lifestyle habits.
