Make time for breaks

In addition to lunch breaks, consider establishing a mini-break schedule where your child can get up, walk around, grab something to drink or stretch their bodies for 10 to 15 minutes every couple of hours. If possible, write out the schedule and make it visible to your child. This will give them something to work towards and will help to cut down on the number of times they try to wander away and focus on something other than their work. If you have the bandwidth to do so, time their breaks so they don’t lose focus.
