In order for your child to succeed with their school work, Dr. Ahdoot suggests the following:
Create a dedicated space for homework and studying - this should be somewhere quiet and away from phones and distractions
Expend their excess energy - if your child tends to be filled with energy, make sure they are active before sitting down to study or work
Divide homework in segments - Dr. Ahdoot suggests 30 minutes blocks in order to not overwhelm your child
As for when a parent should begin to worry about a child possibly having ADHD (attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder), Dr. Ahdoot explains parents should look for signs like the inability to stay seated when required, interrupting people, or failing grades. If your child does exhibit these issues -- at home and while at school -- she urges the parent to speak with their pediatrician.
