Smart but Scattered Teens : The "Executive Skills" Program for Helping Teens Reach Their Potential, Paperback / softback Book

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. See also the authors' Smart but Scattered (with a focus on 4- to 13-year-olds) and their self-help guide for adults.
