Option 1: Less Policing, More Parenting: How to Improve Your Child’s Executive Functioning Skills Without All the Arguments This School Year
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.
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: Applying to College in the Midst of COVID: What Parents Should Know
Every year, a new round of parents walks their high schoolers through the gauntlet of SAT/ACT testing and college admissions. This year’s parents, of course, face an entirely new set of questions and uncertainties. In this frequently-requested webinar, Ann Dolin sheds light on this confusing process and helps high school parents discover:
How COVID has changed college admissions and testing in 2021 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: Covid Learning Gaps and Screen Time Overload: Strategies to Get Kids Back on Track
Our kids are now well into their third school year filled with Covid disruptions. They’re building resiliency to deal with the constant changes, but many students are also struggling with issues like Covid learning gaps and a greater dependency on electronics. As parents, you want to help! But how?
