A floral-rope-wearing hat has become an easy way for kids with attention deficit disorder to look cute while they do their homework.
In a study published in the journal Autism Research & Therapy, researchers used a variety of products to give toddlers flowers, and found that they were able to focus better on learning while wearing them.
The researchers found that when the children wore floral-patterned hats, they were less likely to be distracted and had more time to think about their tasks.
“Our study suggests that the ‘tear-inducing’ effect of floral-related products can be a way to encourage learning by distracting the child and promoting engagement in their daily lives,” said lead author Sarah A. Vickers, PhD, from the University of Michigan.
To make the flowers grow on the head, the researchers made two different designs.
One was a flower-shaped design, and the other was a white floral hat.
Each of the hats was fitted with a small elastic band, which could be worn under or over the child’s head.
During a 30-minute period, the toddlers wore the flowers in different ways.
When the flowers were in the flower hat, they used the elastic bands to hold them firmly on the scalp, rather than using a headband.
Afterwards, the kids used the flower band to hold the hat on their head, and then gently rocked the head with their feet.
As the kids wore the hats, the elastic band slipped off and the hats became loose.
This resulted in a longer lasting effect on the child, who then used the band to tighten the hats over their head and wear them again.
Dr Vickers says the findings suggest that using floral-themed hats can be an effective way for children with ADHD to look cool and stylish while studying.
While these findings suggest there may be benefits for the children in this study, they need to be replicated in more studies.
Other studies have shown that floral hats can help kids focus more on reading, and they may be a useful tool for parents to help their children learn.
