Having a teen can sometimes make you want to pull your hair out. I can’t tell you how many times my teen has waited for the last-minute to start a school project, then get all stressed because he didn’t have all the information or supplies needed! Recently I found this awesome book that has made it much easier with my teen. The book is What’s the Deal with Teens and Time Management. Throughout the book, Josel offers up the “Triple Ts” – her tried and true Tips, Tools and Techniques – to provide support and guidance for parents looking to help their teens understand, develop and implement time management skills.
This book has really helped my son with his time management. As soon as we received the book, he started to read it.The book is nicely organized in a step-by-step manner and packed with outstanding time management tips and solutions. “What’s the Deal with Teens and Time Management?” is a very user-friendly guide that includes an extraordinary amount of helpful information.
Leslie is the perfect combination of researcher, teacher, and organizer that lead her down the path to helping others for 11 years. This book combines the advice she gives to parents, teachers, and students on how to manage time. We love that it is teaching him the importance of management. Something he will need when he enters the real world, we all know how important that is in our lives.
He uses skills like planners, not just ordinary planners. These are special ones that have subjects for school and activities in them. This awesome book also teaches kids how to order their days, when to do homework and whether or not music is helpful for homework. This is great for any child in school and has a lot going on in their lives, planning ahead and knowing what we need to do is always the best way to do things.
Once the author moves past this executive function caveat as to why her methods may not work, she really does break down the time management issues in understandable ways. Her tips are practical and should be easily taught to the average teen. This is a great book, and it is helping me teach my teen what he needs to do in order to get his work done!
Another thing the book also touches upon is how music, food, procrastination, can affect how our teens manage time and perform in school. There is a great section on helping out teens start out the day on the right foot, which is so important for a successful day.
