    Very Helpful Book for Disorganized Kids

    I got this book from my son's teacher, and it was very helpful for two problems that we were having--meltdowns about homework, and keeping homework organized. Re-reading it over the summer to prepare for the school year!

    Helping Students Reach Their Potential

    We all have those students with tons of potential who can't get it together and take so much time and effort to get on track. This book truly provides a new way of looking at the situation that will help you determine what the actual root cause of the problem is, and then gives specific advice on how to deal with it and avoid anger and frustration. The plans offered in the book work. The sections on helping kids get organized and helping kids who have emotional meltdowns over 'small' things helps avoid problems before they accelerate and are especially useful. The book is very well organized, clear, and easy to use. There are 8 skills students need and this model of teaching removes the mystery of how to help bright but challenging students.
