Give your kids chewing gum, especially when they are doing homework!

This study is one many that has shown the helpful effects of chewing gum. Of course, I think this should be sugar-free gum. And other research shows the benefit of gum that contains xylitol to strengthen our teeth.

But just the act of chewing gum helps us and our kids to organize our thoughts better.  In this study by Andrew Scholey, in 2008, revealed that “chewing gum was associated with higher alertness, reduced anxiety and stress, and improvement in overall performance on multi-tasking activities.”

So, add gum to your and your child’s tool box!
