My son is a straight A student and very well behaved. He is very smart...but we are having a problem with him being scatter brained...He will start to do something and if anyone interupts him...off track..He just seems to forget what he was doing.
I know we have babied him a lot growing up by helping him out when he would forget stuff at school or at home and needed it at school...but now he is in 6th grade and I don't want to baby him any longer.
Any tips on how to teach him to be organized and focused?
He plays sports and is very active..so I know that he has a lot going on sometimes and it is easy to forget things...but he just started school this week and already has forgotten to bring stuff home he needs for homework twice.
I know he isn't doing it on purpose (just not caring)...he truly gets sidetracked and just doesn't think about it.
Any help is appreciated!
