I remember when I was teaching my daughter to speak, there were days when she quickly lost concentration.
I knew that, at that moment, I shouldn’t push the teaching too hard.
It would be unpleasant for both parties.
If I’d only known there was a simple way to increase concentration in toddlers.
One day, I found and applied an approach described in the scientific work of Dr. Chen Yu and Dr. Linda Smith.
After that, I noticed that my daughter could maintain her attention longer.
Here‘s the approach:
Make eye contact.
According to the study, children whose parents make eye contact during play can maintain concentration longer.
This makes it easier for them to focus on speaking in the future.
- Watch your child, and when he or she focuses their eyes on some object, name the object
- Praise your child when he looks at you while talking.
After implementing these strategies, I noticed that my daughter could keep her attention longer.
It‘s your call.
