My daughter is very moody and looses interest/focus very quickly be it study or any activity. How can I help her in focusing on things she is doing and increase her concentration level? For example if she wants to do any craft activities then if she is not able to cut she gets worked up as I do not know cutting, when I try to explain that with practice you will learn, it's not gonna happen in a day... She starts crying and then follows the self criticism that I do not know anything. I want to change her this attitude and bring some positivity in her thinking and behaviour, can you please help me?

Answer:
It is a natural response. Children are seeing such things on tv, in school and at home. So appreciate the process and not the result. When she does an activity, appreciate the process. Then talk to her how the process is more important than the result . Talk to her about your values and how important it is to your family. Role model the behaviour you want her to adopt. Please read this blog - https://www.parentune.com/parent-blog/fostering-early-years-of-development-for-your-child/357 All the best and do keep us posted. Try these concentration techniques: 1. Ask her to circle the letter 'e' from a passage. 2. If she likes to listen to music, play an instrumental piece and ask her to listen the non dominant instrument. 3. Doing a puzzle/ scrabble/ crossword. 4. Colouring/painitng 5. Spotting differences in pictures. I hope these give you some ideas.
