Poor concentration in children can cause parents to stress and worry. Still, it is a normal and episodic occurrence in children. Many clinicians believe that we are now too quick to diagnose and medicate children for ADHD attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder. In the past, doctors looked for children’s gifts and talents to reinforce. See video. Many studies relate low concentration to diets heavy on sugar. 

Signs of low concentration:

  • Easily distracted
  • Losing things frequently
  • Doing poorly in school
  • Irritable or mood swings
  • Unable to complete tasks appropriate for his age and interests
  • poor organization
  • Restless and fidgety

We, at Healthy Connections, believe that parents are instrumental in the wellbeing of the family. The earlier you equip your children with tools to improve concentration and find their interests and talents, the easier it will be for you, and the better it is for your child.
