On this episode, Angela and Kristin discuss how to teach time management and prioritization skills to kids and teens. They walk parents through ideas such as the Time Detective (i.e., how much time you think it takes you to get ready for school vs. how much time it actually does), breaking large tasks into more manageable ones to prevent procrastination, and using those handy-dandy visual supports to support organization. They also infuse some variations of tips for different age ranges, including how to start teaching the first stages of time management to toddlers and how to promote independence for teens so they can make it to school on time!
