how to pay attention

Four sons. Three with ADHD. One with a Learning Disability. Lots and lots of homework.
How our family discovered


She stares into space, ignoring her homework. He's oblivious to the math you're trying to teach. The kids are unfocused, distracted, zoned out. They just don't pay attention. You know. You've been there.

Our family has, too. A typical homework session at our house used to go something like this:

It has taken 20 minutes to get our son Ron ready to do his math homework. We've dealt with a lost assignment, a broken pencil, insatiable thirst and a tale about throw up. But finally, Ron is at the table with his workbook open.

He looks at the page. "There are twenty problems! I'll never get these done!" To his credit, he starts, but when I check five minutes later, he's only done problem one...and he's watching the dog scratch her ear.

"Pay attention!"

So he does problem two, gets distracted when the phone rings, and doesn't notice he's skipped to problem four. "I can't do this!" he wails. "I don't remember how." He does know how, but he can't focus.


He's only on problem five and my patience is wearing thin. And we still have a book report to do...
You know the rest of the story, because yesterday, it happened to you. Whether you're a parent or a teacher, you know the frustration, the aggravation and the stress - of having kids who just don't pay attention.

By the time our third son started school, I'd had enough. There simply had to be some way to get hold of the boys and help them focus. And that's when I started my list...

pay attention When I finished, I had 100 ways to help my kids pay attention - hints from our family, teachers, and friends. Practical stuff. Stuff that worked.
