1. Keep a calm home environment. This means not yelling at your child if he doesn't mind you or calms down to try to his homework. Of course, every parent is often pushed to the acute and "loses it" occasionally.

2. Limit media distractions in your home. Many children aren't nearly as good at filtering out noise as adults are. This means that having the tv on while your child is trying to try to her homework may interfere together with her ability to concentrate. Limit your child to at least one hour of "screen time" per day.

3. Have your child's vision and hearing tested. If your child suddenly starts to possess trouble at college, take him to the pediatrician for a vision and hearing test.

4. Stay positive in your child's presence. Don't argue together with your spouse or partner when your child is around. Surprisingly, children worry about their parents even as very much as their parents worry about them. Hearing parents argue or maybe talk in loud voices are often scary to a toddler.

5. Be "in the moment" with your child at least once every day. Have a couple of minutes every day once you can focus one hundred pc of your attention on your child: read her a book, play a brief parlor game, or make a drawing or a painting together.

6. Have clear rules and enforce them consistently. Parents should come to an agreement about the principles concerning their child, and back one another up.

7. Enroll your child during a sport to channel his extra energy. If your child is "hyper," he may need more outlets for his energy. Remember, Olympic trophy swimmer Michael Phelps had trouble focusing within the classroom and was diagnosed with ADHD.
