How do you teach children to concentrate?

20 June 2017 · The Spiritual Path

The best way to teach children how to concentrate is for you to learn concentration and practice it yourself. Concentration is the ability for you to keep your awareness on one thing for an extended period of time. Parents struggle to teach concentration because they are not concentrated themselves. Children learn through examples — they watch you do something and they do it. If you learn and practice doing one thing at a time, your children will see this. Once you’ve created a lifestyle where you are very focused on doing one thing at a time, even on the mundane things, that’s when you start to teach your children concentration.
