Help Your Child Improve Their Concentration Through Humour with Tips from ‘Busy Bodies’ Podcast 

As a parent, you know how hard it can be to keep your kids focused on one task for more than a few minutes. Whether they’re doing homework, playing a game, or just trying to sit still, concentration is key to success. But why is concentration so important, and how can you help your child improve theirs?

5 facts about concentration

  • Concentration is like a muscle. The more you use it, the stronger it gets. 
  • Different tasks require different levels of concentration. 
  • Distractions make it hard to concentrate.  
  • Multitasking is a myth. Doing more than one thing at a time affects your concentration and therefore your performance. 
  • Concentration can be improved through mindfulness techniques.  

How to help your kids improve their concentration

So how can you help your kids improve their concentration? Here are some tips from ‘Busy Bodies with Mr. SnotBottom’, a hilarious educational podcast for kids all about the human body and brain: 

  • Encourage breaks. Breaks can help refresh and recharge your child’s brain, allowing them to concentrate better when they return to their task. 
  • Minimize distractions. Try to create a quiet, calm environment for your child to work in. Turn off the TV and other electronics, and limit background noise. 
  • Use positive reinforcement. Praise your child for their efforts, and encourage them to keep practising their concentration skills. 
  • Make it fun. Incorporate games and activities that challenge your child’s concentration, such as puzzles, memory games, and mindfulness exercises. 
  • Set achievable goals. Break down larger tasks into smaller, more manageable goals, and help your child prioritize their time and energy. 

This episode also includes a special appearance by mindfulness coach, Amy Taylor-Kabbaz from the award-winning ‘Bedtime Explorers’ podcast!
