  • "I told you, I'll do it later."

    If you're the parent of a "smart but scattered" teen, trying to help him or her grow into a self-sufficient, responsible
    adult may feel like a never-ending battle. Now you have an alternative to micromanaging, cajoling, or ineffective
    punishments. This positive guide provides a science-based program for promoting teens' independence by building their
    executive skills--the fundamental brain-based abilities needed to get organized, stay focused, and control impulses and
    emotions. Executive skills experts Drs. Richard Guare and Peg Dawson are joined by Colin Guare, a young adult who has
    successfully faced these issues himself. Learn step-by-step strategies to help your teen live up to his or her potential
    now and in the future--while making your relationship stronger. Helpful worksheets and forms can be downloaded and
    printed in a convenient 8 1/2" x 11" size.

    See also the authors' Smart but Scattered (with a focus on 4- to 13-year-olds) and their self-help guide for adults.
    Plus, Work-Smart Academic Planner: Write It Down, Get It Done, designed for middle and high school students to use in
    conjunction with coaching, and related titles for professionals.
