    Dear Sage,

    Your comments zeroed in on some very real problems. Helping children learn to pay attention, listen, and regulate themselves has so much to do with success.

    Thank you for your wise comments.

    When I talk with parents or teachers these days, I can be sure that one of their first questions will have to do with getting kids to pay attention — and for good reason. Attention and its partner, self-regulation, are the foundations of learning, but these so-called "executive skills" are an increasing problem in our multitasking society. More and more children each year are diagnosed with "attention deficit disorder," and teachers describe increasing difficulties with students' self-control and concentration — causing problems with everything from math tests to social relationships to motivation for learning.
