Are you concerned about your child’s learning, behavior, or social skills?

Your child’s ability to learn is directly related to their ability to focus. And their ability to focus is related to how interested they are in the material. If your child is preoccupied with other stressful things, their focus will be limited. And any number of learning challenges can also make it harder for them to focus and learn.
The good news is that all of these concerns can be minimized, if not eliminated. Here are some things you can do to help your child focus and learn:
- Make sure they are interested in the material. This may mean finding ways to make the material more engaging or relevant to your child’s interests.
- Help them to manage stress. This may involve teaching them relaxation techniques or helping them to identify and address the sources of their stress.
- Identify and address any learning challenges. This may involve working with a tutor or other professional to help your child overcome their challenges.
- Enroll them in academic support from a counselor. A counselor can help your child develop the skills they need to succeed in school, such as time management, study skills, and test-taking strategies.
With your help, your child can learn to manage many of the challenges they are facing and succeed in school.
Here are some additional tips that may be helpful:
- Create a quiet and distraction-free environment for your child to study.
- Set realistic expectations for your child’s schoolwork.
- Be patient and supportive. Learning to focus takes time and practice.
- Talk to your child’s teacher about their concerns. The teacher may be able to offer additional suggestions or support.
