Help identify a starting point
When your child is overwhelmed and his school work feels beyond his control, often the easiest and least stressful in-the-moment thing to do is put it off. (Unfortunately, this usually leads to even more stress!) When your child procrastinates, you can nudge him forward by helping him identify a starting point and by teaching him how to break the work down into manageable pieces. Many students do fine once they get started and regain some control. It’s often just a matter of helping them take the first step.
