Help your kids get organized
DEVELOPING ORGANIZATIONAL SKILLS IS A LIFE LONG GIFT
As parents, how many times have we watched our kids pull everything out of their backpack looking for a piece of paper?
How many times have we watched them turn their room upside down to find their homework that they finished but do not know where they left it, or even more frustrating forget to turn their homework in or bring the correct notebook home.
Good study habits, organization, and coping skills are some of the most important tools that we can help our children develop.
ORGANIZATIONAL SKILLS ARE NOT TAUGHT AT SCHOOL
Unfortunately, they are not part of the curriculum taught in school and our children are left to fend for themselves. Even those who managed to slide by in elementary school now find themselves overwhelmed as they enter middle school.
As our children leave the safety of elementary school, middle school becomes a time of transition to higher learning. As such, it can be a source of stress for both you and your child.
Most likely, it is the first time in your child’s academic career that his or her classes are departmentalized with multiple classrooms and teachers. Your child is now required to be responsible for both organizing their time and setting their priorities.
For many this process can be even more challenging on the intelligent child who has been able to slide by until now.
COACHING TO TEACH ORGANIZATIONAL SKILLS TO YOUR KIDS
Through coaching with positive communication and organizational tools, I can help your child develop the necessary organizational skills that will allow them to navigate successfully their school careers.
To do so, it is important that they not feel disparaged but triumphant. Recognizing that children learn in their own unique way and helping them feel victorious ensures their continued achievement through graduate school and into the workplace.
Coaching will help both of you keep your eye on the ball and reach your long-term goals.
Learning to be organized is a process that requires dedication and support. As a coach and a therapist with a Masters in Education, a Masters in Family Therapy, and a PhD candidate I have the knowledge and the experience to help guide you and your child to a successful future.
