The Organized Child:
An Effective Program to Maximize Your Kid’s Potential—in School and in Life
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 8½” x 11″ size.
