Given To Me For An Honest Review What's the Deal with Teens and Time Management by Leslie Josel is a book that both parents and teens  should read together. This book is geared toward ages 12-18 and grades 5-12. It is easy to read and  gives clear and easy directions. The tips and guidelines can be used immediately. Throughout the book Leslie Josel uses her Triple T's - Tips, Tools & Techniques.  In this book you'll learn: The 5 mindsets  parents need, How to create a personal homework profile for your teen, how to help create a time sense  for your teen, how to pick an appropriate academic planner for you teen and there will be case studies  and other resouces for your use. Time management doesn't come naturally but it can be learned. This  is a small book but it has a huge amount of information to use. It can be used in other ways too.  Sometimes adults can use time management also. I gave this book 5 stars but it deserves more. I recommend this book to everyone. I look for more from Leslie Josel.

Time is hard to manage, even for adults, but especially for teens. Managing time is a learned habit, we aren’t just born knowing how. Teaching the skills of managing time, generally, falls on the parents. Teens and Time Management is a great resource for parents! It is a short book, but it is filled with practical suggestions from someone who has been there. Leslie started her journey when her son was just 5 years old and struggling with ADHD and executive function. She read articles, did research, went to conferences and spoke to experts. I can completely relate to the “researcher” in her because when we deal with issues that is exactly how I respond, with research and lots of it. Leslie is the perfect combination of researcher, teacher, and organizer that lead her down the path to helping others for 11 years. This book combines the advice she gives to parents, teachers, and students on how to manage time. One of my favorite parts of the book, not only helps with teaching teens time management, but it also helped me have a better relationship with my adult teenage daughter. I don’t want to give it away, but make sure you read page 18! It is a great idea to use with all your children, no matter their age. The book also touches upon how music, food, procrastination, all of which can affect how our teens manage time and perform in school. There is a great section on helping out teens start out the day on the right foot, which is so important for a successful day. With so much technology today, cell phones, facebook, twitter, there is a great section that addresses media distraction. It also offers suggestion for media distraction plugins to help your teen gain control of their need for media. Leslie also offers a section on her favorite resources. I think this is a great book for parents and teachers to read to help their teens through today and also prepare for the future.
