I have found that sometimes simply putting on some music, preferably light classical, like Mozart, helped with all of my four boys. It seemed to quiet their minds and their bodies.
Having finished raising three of our four boys so far, I also found out that my concept of my kiddos being fidgety and unfocused, wasn't always them truly being unfocused. Boys especially seem to have to move even when studying. When I relaxed and allowed them to study in positions that they were more comfortable in, their focus seemed to increase.
When all else failed, I closed the books and we went outside, which is always a great idea for boys and girls alike.
