Hello Arizona parents! Today in the Sierra Vista Children’s Health Blog, we are going to look at various ways to lengthen kids’ attention spans. An increased attention span can improve learning ability as well as behavior and is an important aspect of kids health in Sierra Vista.
1. Find an activity that will hold their attention. This might mean that you need to experiment with different types of toys and crafts. One child might enjoy building blocks while another may become engrossed in an art project. There are many craft and hobby stores in the Fort Huachuca, Tombstone, and Sierra Vista area where parents can get great ideas.
2. Recorded stories are a wonderful resource for increasing attention spans. Have your child lie on the floor and close their eyes, then play a recorded story. When it’s finished, have your child retell the story to you. Local Hereford libraries are perfect for finding recorded books and stories. Or you can download audio books for your iPad or other electronic reader.
3. Make sure that your child is using age-appropriate toys, crafts, and media. Age recommendations can be very helpful when deciding what activities will effectively engage your child.
Remember that it’s natural for different children to have varying attention spans, but the attention span of all kids should improve with age.
