Managing your busy schedule

Soccer (for school and a travel team). Piano lessons. Tap, ballet, and hip-hop dance. Homework. Is your child overscheduled? If she’s not able to put forth her best effort in school; if her grades begin to slip; if she’s sleeping fewer hours; or if she seems more anxious or stressed, take a look at her schedule. Students have many competing interests and it’s hard to give something up. But if school is starting to suffer, it could be an executive function/time management issue to work out, or, she may need to re-evaluate her extracurricular activities. Just like adults, it’s often impossible for students to do it all.
