Is Your Kid Frustrated With a Task? Try a 15-Minute Focus to De-stress!

Messy room? Homework meltdown? Nobody likes spending hours on a task, and knowing you have something unpleasant facing you can hike up the procrastination quotient. The good news is anyone can do anything in 15-minute increments. The next time your child becomes frustrated, encourage 15-minute focus. 

  • Set a timer on the microwave or cell phone and spend the next 15 minutes on the task. 
  • When the timer rings, take a break – play, talk, laugh, sing or have a healthy snack. 
  • When your child is relaxed enough to face another 15 minutes, set the timer again.
  • Repeat until the task is complete!
