    How do I get his attention without having to shout?

    My 7 year old is very active and has a very short attention span. How do I get his attention without having to shout?

    Lorraine Gaye,

    Go to where your child is and get at his eye level and talk to him.
    Gently explain that you desire his attention and need to talk to him.
    His behavior is typical for a 7 year old child.
    Sometimes as a parent we have to stop our actions before we can expect our children to stop theirs.
    Stop yelling and go talk to him at his eye level....should work wonders.
    Happy Parenting
    Blessings

    Hello! I did have this eye level talk with him. But you are right, I have to stop whatever it is I'm doing and sit with him again and again until he gets it. Being a single mother and doing everything mostly turns me into this "routine robot". Thank you very much!
