Paying attention (to what others are saying)

Keeping quiet, listening and understanding what others say

This skill involves the child to learn how to stop the current task to actively listen and pay attention and reduce distractions such as by looking at the person who is talking, listening with attention to what he/she says and think about what is being said and whether you need to do something

Your mum is telling you what the plan is for your brother’s birthday tomorrow

Listen to what your mum is saying, look into her eyes, avoid any distractions and take notes in your head or using pen and paper of what needs to be done.
