Parenting Tips for helping a student be more responsible/organized…
If your student SEES something, they are more likely to REMEMBER it. Use checklists, sticky notes, school planners, phone reminders, or even an app (Remember the Milk is a free to-do list app for older students).
Keep it simple.
Work WITH your student–as a team–to develop a plan.
Show your student ways that you organize your own life or use the skill of responsibility.
For Junior High/High School students, ask:
What are your ideas to be more responsible/organized?
How can I support you on this goal?
