6 Organizational Habits That Really Work

In years of working with students to improve academic stress and frustration, we've found many of the problems stem from disorganization. Some students who were organized managed to stay afloat and achieve success. Others stumbled because their poor organizational skills impacted them in each and every 
subject area. If your child needs some tweaking when it comes to neatness and planning ahead, check out these easy and fun tips. 

1. Set Up A Time To Talk - having a chunk of uninterrupted time to chat will reduce tension and frustration over organizational habits.

2. Nag No More - instead of saying "Did you get your things organized for tomorrow?", try "I know I was on your case a lot last year. Let's get prepared for the year by setting up systems you like." 

3. Maintain Neatness - organize a 20 minute weekly session called "The Clean Sweep".
