My son is quite often totally oblivious to what's around him. For example:
- jumping up and down under a table
- all of a sudden spinning around with his arms out and smacking the people walking next to or behind him
- stopping in the middle of a hallway to pick something up causing the people behind him to trip over him
Now I'm sure many of you will say "that's normal". Yes, I agree, to some extent it is. However his mother is also often totally oblivious of her surroundings as well... as I have noticed are her parents on occasion.
In fear of this being genetic, I'd like to come up with some games to help him work on that skill, much in the same way marco-polo helps folks with directional hearing, or chess helps with predictive analysis, or guessing games with deductive logic.
Anyone have any idea of games that might help with this?
Currently looking at the toddler age, but also thinking forward to the pre-schooler age as well.
