The organized child : an effective program to maximize your kid's potential-- in school and in life

Image of item
Book

First Edition.

Whether it's perpetually forgetting to write down homework, misplacing backpacks, or cramming month-long assignments into a single night, organizational skills problems get in the way of school success--and wreak havoc at home. Fortunately for children and their frustrated parents, help is at hand. This unique resource stands out from other books because it is based on a scientifically tested program that works. Parents get step-by-step guidance for teaching 7- to 13-year-olds specific skills to track assignments, organize their school materials and toys, manage their time, and create and follow effective routines. Praise, rewards, and fun characters ( Glitches and Mastermind ) motivate kids to practice each new skill; loads of concrete examples give parents a helping hand. Practical tools for planning and time management can be downloaded and printed in a convenient 8 1/2 x 11 size.
