Although he SUPPOSEDLY cannot stay focused in the classroom he CAN and DOES spend hours playing video games.
A Pill is easier than Parenting,
just get the boy diagnosed with
Absent Dad/Husband Disease and you’re all set
for your extra “me time”.
I think you've unwittingly hit upon why boys today have a hard time focusing.... they're used to the quick, short attention span gaming that they've grown up on. How can a classroom even hope to capture their attention?
I don't game but my business is on the computer. And I've noticed that I have a much harder time focusing on reading a book now than I used to, which I could do for hours. My mind just keeps jumping away from it. Is it because on the computer you can jump from website to website and the brain "learns" to be impatient?
I don't know. But at 49 I notice a difference in myself. I wonder what it's doing to brains that are still growing and developing.
Bingo. I see it in my son. He can tell you every permutation of a game he is playing but “struggles” to remember to write down his homework or memorize multiplication tables or simple formulas like area or a circle.
Then he doesn’t have a focusing problem, he has a boredom problem. Schools are written to cater to girls and to reject boys.
