28% of children between the ages of 3 and 17 have been diagnosed with ADHD. This means that over 6 million children, just within the United States of America, have ADHD. If you are in the process of raising a child with ADHD, you are not alone. You understand how difficult it can be to capture and keep the attention of your child, and today The Tutoring Center of Tampa Bay would like to give you some tips to further help you engage the attention of your child. 

Routine and Structure

We know that all children benefit from routine and structure. However, due to ADHD making it more difficult to exhibit self-control and focus, it is absolutely essential for children with ADHD to have external controls. Clearly stating what is expected of them, and when, will help them to develop these skills.

Healthy Living

It is essential that you and your child maintain a healthy lifestyle. Given your example, it will be easier for your child to adapt to healthy choices of his/her own. Let us start with three healthy living habits you and your child can practice.

Exercise and Play
A healthy amount of physical activity is crucial to the well-being of you and your child. Physical activity that is enjoyed will help to activate not only the body, but also promote mental health.   

Eating Well
A balanced diet, low in sugar, will help improve brain activity and brain health.

Sleeping Well
It is not simply a matter of how much you or your child should sleep, which will vary based on activity level and age, but also about how you or your child sleep best. This is based largely on preference. You should know what your personal preferences are, as well as asking your child when he or she sleeps best. Is it better that the room is completely dark? Quiet? Does he or she prefer sleeping with a nightlight or a fan in the room, providing noise?

If you feel as if these tips are not working, stick with them. Remember it takes weeks to form a habit, and perhaps longer for those who have shortened attention spans. Don’t fret. You might feel it necessary to receive help for an academic area your child is having difficulty with. The Tutoring Center uses a method of tutoring that is designed to capture and keep the attention of those with difficulty in that area. Our professional and dedicated tutors are ready to help you and your child become the most successful! Give us a call to find out more, (813)-991-9888.
