Reminder alarms for the “forgetful” student

If your child is forgetful, use technology to support his daily routine. Help him set reminder alarms on his most frequently used device to nudge him to get started (and hand-in) his homework, to check-in with his teacher after school, and to bring the correct materials to and from school. Reminder alarms help remove adults from the equation (it’s never fun to nag!) and impels the student to take more ownership of his daily tasks and routine.
