Next Online Class Now Launching!
How to Help Smart but Scattered Kids

Could your child be earning better grades, but is instead stymied by chronic disorganization and waiting until the very last minute to complete assignments - if he remembers to do them in the first place? Do you feel like you've become the Homework Police? You're not alone. Just a few weeks ago, I introduced my online course: Prescriptions for Disorganization and Procrastination: How to Help Your Smart but Scattered Kid. In less than a day, it sold out! To reach more parents, I'm rolling out another class so that you can learn on your own time and in your own home. For more information or to register click here.

WTOP's Shawn and Hillary spoke with Ann Dolin about the problem with grade inflation.  Listen here
