In martial arts, we have kids do one thing at a time. For younger kids, and kids with severe ADD, they may only do one thing for 30 seconds – but for that 30 seconds that’s all they focus on.
Then, the better and better they get at focusing, the longer we have them focus for. Eventually, kids might focus the entire session on just one exercise or activity.
And they never get bored or antsy.
Before you know it, they do this at home too. They focus on their homework… on their chores… on conversations with you… and anything else they put their mind to.
30 seconds will lead into 30 minutes before you know it.
