Description

"I told you, I'll do it later."
"I forgot to turn in the stupid application."
"Could you drive me to school? I missed the bus again."
"I can't walk the dog--I have too much homework!"

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.

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.
