How to Help Your Child Overcome Their Learning Distractions

Learning distractions come in all forms, and to help your child overcome them you will have to first identify them. Help your child avoid wasting time while studying by understanding what their main distractors are.

Internal Learning Distractions

Internal learning distractions may be harder for parents to spot because they tend to live in your child's head. They aren't quite visible because they are usually related to anxiety, stress over an important test, self-doubt, and even worries from their personal life. Unfortunately, these can take over your child's mind, making it harder for them to focus on what's in front of them. In some cases, your child may just need to talk to someone and get out all of their worries. Let your child know that you're there for them and reassure them that they're going to be ok.

External Learning Distractions

External learning distractions can be easier to spot because they tend to be physical objects, people, or even your child's study space. Objects like cellphones or games can be very distracting, especially if your child is constantly receiving notifications. Make their study space an electronics-free zone unless they need a computer to complete their homework. Do your best to ensure your family isn't distracting your child as they work. We know you may be tempted to remind them that it's their turn to do the dishes, but these types of reminders should wait until after their study time. Finally, be sure they're working in a space that encourages productivity.
