Developchildren's3Aconcentrationinstages

  I believe this will be a problem encountered by many parents during the suspension. In particular, the children in kindergarten have reached the age of school. Parents especially think that the concentration of children is very important. This time, I will share the 3A focus of developing the concentration of children of different ages to avoid children from missing the golden period of schooling.

  Autonomy (3 years old)

  In Hong Kong, many children start to go to kindergarten when they are three years old. The children formally entered the pre-school period, they began to ask questions curiously, and their language skills improved rapidly. Not only can they express their personal feelings and needs in plain words, but they can also follow simple and clear instructions in adult daily life, and even talk with adults.

  First of all, parents can seize this opportunity to cultivate their children's self-discipline. By giving the children some instructions (for example: eating for themselves within a specified time), the focus is to patiently train the children to do their own things step by step.

  Secondly, parents can help their children develop self-discipline by demonstrating and encouraging positively. Finally, parents can establish a table of daily routines with their children, let the children learn to arrange their own time, and develop habits to focus on everything in life (for example: games, learning and rest, etc.).

  Aim goal (4 years old)

  When a child reaches the age of four, he or she will generally be confident to learn and express actively, thereby developing social skills. At this stage, parents should seize the opportunity to help their children set goals so that they can easily focus on one thing.

  First, parents can use the “S” Specific, “M” Measurable, “A” Achievable, “R” Relevant, and “T” Time-bound in the SMART Principle. Time limit) these five elements to set the goal.

  In addition, parents can set staged goals according to their children's abilities and progress. When the child has reached the standard, the parent can increase the difficulty, giving the child the opportunity to continuously challenge the new goal (for example: let the child read 5 new words first, then come 10 new words).

  Finally, parents try to accompany their children to challenge new goals and encourage their efforts and progress. The point is that when children have goals, they can focus on them.

  Attraction interest (5 years old)

  Many parents will gradually realize that their children have more and more opinions and ideas in the details of daily life when facing their five-year-old children. Not only do five-year-olds need to be more purposeful than when they were three or four years old, they also like to ask their parents for more autonomy.

  Starting at the age of five, parents can first allow their children to choose their favorite activities, encourage them to complete the whole process, and let the children develop their own interests.

  Second, parents can let their children master the steps of activities (such as dumplings and feeding pets) and the time required for the game, so as to avoid interrupting the child's learning and exploration to cultivate the child's concentration.

  Third, parents should respect their children’s choices and uniqueness, and the most important thing is to try not to impose personal opinions and expectations on children.

  As long as six-year-old children continue to develop their interests with the assistance and support of their parents, they will naturally concentrate. The most important thing is that parents should let their children try a lot of different life experiences in person, so that the children have the space to discover their interests, and toward the challenging goals and self-discipline to complete the things on the daily routine table.
