Prescriptions for Disorganization and Procrastination:
How to Help Smart but Scattered Kids
Exhausted by homework battles? Tired of nagging your kids to get them to focus and finish their homework, if they can even find it in the first place? Has your role as mom or dad turned into the role of - Homework Police? Ugh! You're not alone. In my 25 years in education, I can tell you that the after-school struggle can be one of the most painful aspects of parenting. That's why I've created the live, online course Prescriptions for Disorganization and Procrastination: How to Help Smart but Scattered Kids. Check out the course outline here.
Why Is My Smart Kid So Scattered?

Every day I speak to parents who are stressed out and confused. If you live in the DC area, you can probably identify with being "stressed out." But many are also confused at how their smart kids can be so scattered.
The parents who call our office looking for help are confounded by the fact that their kid is really smart (heck, most of these kids can tell you a story a mile long, remembering every last detail, and some have even been in the gifted program), but their grades are mired in mediocrity because they are perpetually disorganized and procrastinate like crazy.
Parents report that when left to their own devices without any parental oversight, these kids can't keep up with their assignments and rarely study for tests, let alone remember when the tests are in the first place. And not surprisingly, when parents try to help, their overtures are resisted. Read more here.
