Checklists are your friends!
Checklists are your friends! Help your child create checklists for what he has to do before he leaves for school in the morning, when he gets home from school and needs to get down to doing homework, and before he goes to bed at night. Encourage your child to not consider a task done until it has a checkmark next to it on the list. This minimizes the possibility of a task slipping through the cracks or a step in the process being forgotten.
