It is easy for a child to ensure laser like focus while playing or when engaged in something of his/her interest. A child does not need to learn to concentrate and focus. He is a natural at it! The real problem statement is, therefore, not how to increase a child’s ability to concentrate. It is in fact how to revolutionize our teaching methodologies to match the energy and enthusiasm of a child.
This is what this Book is all about.
