It's frustrating how my son gets distracted so often & so easily... Are there ways to help children like him to increase their attention span?

Understand how u feel. My younger boy's also the same. 1 minute he is doing his maths, the next minutes he goes to the kitchen or looks at the fishes or doodles... Sigh, sometimes, I really feel like just tying him to the chair

haha... go ahead and tie them to the chair! kidding. i think u could challenge them to sit 30min working on a homework, and if they never run away during this time, reward them with a snack
