Hi I just started homeschooling my 5 year old son. During school time we turn off the tv, radio, phone - anything that could be a distraction. He really seems to have a hard time focusing tho. It is just me and him at home, there are no other children or anything to add to this. An example is we were doing a work book that said "circle the red shirts like Johnny has on" and it had a pictur of a boy in a red shirt. He started talking about what if the boy was named Edward not Johnny and why does he have a red shirt and on and on.....completely getting off from what was asked of him. Is there anything I can do to help him focus more and stay on task?
