Option 1: GET IT DONE! Executive Function Hacks for Boosting Your Teen’s Productivity
Sound familiar? If you’re having this conversation multiple times each week, you’re not alone. Whether your child is in elementary school or preparing to graduate from high school, you want them to be ready and on top of their priorities. Your child likely wants to be organized as well. So why do they keep missing deadlines, losing assignments, and starting things the night before they’re due?
It’s because executive functioning skills, like time management or prioritization, take time to learn. But once a child develops systems that work for them, these strategies can help them be successful throughout K-12 school and beyond.
If you’re tired of hearing your child respond, “I don’t know,” every time you ask about homework or tests coming up, this webinar is for you! Join Ann Dolin, M.Ed. to learn how you can help your child develop those critical executive functioning skills this school year. Other topics covered include:
How to ensure kids stay on top of their schoolwork without feeling like a nag
Site maps, Google calendars, and other tools for staying organized
Smart strategies for tracking assignments (especially if your child’s teachers have different expectations and systems!)
When to leave things up to your child, step in to support, or recruit outside help
Keeping kids engaged by encouraging them to ask questions and advocate for themselves
Opening the lines of communication to improve the parent/child relationship and avoid conflict around academics
Option 2: ROADMAP TO COLLEGE: What Students Should Do in Each Year of High School to Stand Out
Every year, a new round of parents walks their high schoolers through the gauntlet of SAT/ACT testing and college admissions. In this frequently-requested webinar, Ann Dolin sheds light on this confusing process and helps families with high school students discover:
How COVID changed college admissions and testing in 2022 and beyond
The biggest factors that now determine whether a student will be admitted to their dream school
Practical tips for strong college essays that stand out
The difference between test optional and test blind (and why it matters)
How to know if and when your child should prep for the ACT/SAT—or if they should skip the tests altogether
How to best support students in each year of high school
With clear next steps and updated advice, parents will feel confident in the best way to support their high schooler this year—and beyond.
Option 3: NO MORE LATE NIGHTS: Overcoming Procrastination in Children
If you’ve parented a K-12 student for long, you likely know the pain of getting to the end of a long day only to realize your child never completed a project or studied for a test that’s… tomorrow?! When kids procrastinate on schoolwork, it leads to less sleep and more stress for the entire family. This unhealthy habit doesn’t do their grades any favors either! Fortunately, procrastination is a habit your child can unlearn. Join Ann Dolin, M.Ed. to:
Learn the real reason kids procrastinate (It’s not what you think!)
Discover how to get your child to start early on assignments
See how simple rewards can correct this frustrating tendency
Stop the late nights and high stress caused by procrastination
Help your child recall more and improve their grades
Procrastination might be common, but that doesn’t mean it’s unavoidable. Let this be the year where procrastination and stress come to an end in your household!
Option 4: STOPPING THE 'SUMMER SLIDE' without Sacrificing Summer Fun
Finding the perfect balance between a carefree, relaxing summer and making sure your kids are invested in summer learning and ready for the upcoming school year is a challenge! As a parent, you don't want your child to enter the next grade unprepared, but you also don't want to spend the summer serving as an academic taskmaster. So what's a concerned parent to do this summer?
It is possible for your K-12 child to enjoy a fun summer and enter next year prepared. Educational Connections Founder Ann Dolin, M.Ed., will show you how! In this workshop, you will learn how to:
Plan interactive, age-appropriate summer activities so fun that your child won't even realize they're learning
Help your student fill in learning gaps by incorporating (online and offline) math, reading, and writing into your family's summer routine
Set "micro goals" with your student to uncover what they want to learn this summer
Ask powerful questions to open the lines of communication to avoid the parent/child conflict around academics
Ensure your child has the right mindset and support system to overcome challenges in the next grade level
