Identify Your Child's Distractors

Learning distractions have been around for as long as there have been students. While it's not uncommon for students to get distracted or procrastinate while studying, this doesn't mean it should be ignored. In fact, distractors are a huge time waster your child can do without. To help them overcome their biggest distractors, use these tips.

External Learning Distractions

External learning distractions are the easiest to spot because they tend to be tangible items that steal your child's attention away from their work. These are often electronics, people, or even their study environment. If your child reaches for their cellphone every five minutes without even noticing, it may be best to make their study space a cellphone-free zone or even an electronics-free zone. If people tend to distract your child, it may be best for them to study on their own. Finally, be sure they have a designated study area that encourages productivity.

Internal Learning Distractions

Internal learning distractions are harder to recognize because they aren't anything tangible. These tend to take the form of distracting thoughts running through your child's head. Whether they're nervous about a big test, doubting their abilities to complete a lesson, or are worried about a concerning issue in their life, these thoughts can really take over. If they're reading a lesson in their textbook, they may not be understanding anything in the book because their mind is preoccupied. If you notice your child is struggling to focus, ask them what's going on. Let them know you're there to help.
