Help Your Child Get Organized

Help him keep track of his assignments with a checklist or a homework planner. Star the assignments that are most important and mark the assignments that will take the most time. Write the list with him for the first week to help make it a habit, and then let him do it on his own. Make sure he has an organized folder or binder so that he won’t lose all those loose papers.
