Eliminate forgetfulness!

“Don’t hold in mind what paper or a device can hold for you.” Write out the steps for solving math equations; create checklists and to-do lists; set reminders in your online calendar or phone; brainstorm before writing; write down homework assignments in an agenda book. Using paper or a device to hold important information helps ensure your child won’t lose track of anything, while freeing his mind to fully attend to whatever it is he’s doing in the moment.
