While being wonderful in many ways, our access to technology like phones and laptops has also resulted in us being prone to frequent distraction from daily items of importance. For many students, it can be a real struggle to keep their mind on their work when there are so many interesting things vying for their attention.
If you would like to help your child create more focused work time and develop better daily habits, check out the Forest App or the Freedom App with them. Both of these apps can be set up to create a focused working time. During the focus time period you set, the distracting websites you choose will be temporarily blocked until a time of your choosing, allowing you to get through a day feeling more productive!
