Webinar for Families: Homework Solutions
Ask The Expert:
Homework Solutions for Your Middle or High School Student
March 9 | 7 PM, EST
Featuring Ann K. Dolin, MEd
Sometimes, it can be just so frustrating: You want your child to stay motivated in school, organized, and on top of assignments. Your child wants to stay on track, too, but struggles. Why do they keep missing deadlines, losing homework, and end up starting an assignment the night before it’s due?
Executive function skills, including time management, take time to learn. Once a student develops systems that work for them, these strategies can help them succeed in middle school, high school, and into adulthood.
Ann Dolin, MEd, will discuss how you can help your middle school or high school student develop critical executive function skills this school year. Other topics covered include:
- How to ensure your kid completes schoolwork without feeling like a nag
- Ways to communicate to improve the parent/child relationship and avoid conflict around academics
- Apps, calendars, and other student-friendly organizational tools
- When to leave things up to your child, step in to support, or recruit outside help
