Today’s tip for March 21, 2016:

For many students, eliminating distractions and staying on task is extremely difficult, especially while on the computer. Keep in mind the idea “If he could, he would.” That is — if your child were able, he would certainly like to be able to exert more control and eliminate distractions. At this time in his life, however, he may not have the capacity to do so on his own. Here’s how you can help him: If your child is easily distracted by YouTube, Facebook, Instagram or various gaming websites, try getcoldturkey.com for PCs and selfcontrolapp.com for Macs. These apps allow the student to block particular websites for a period of time they choose. And once blocked, there’s no going back until the clock runs out. It’s a simple tool that can have an enormous impact.
