Daily Schedules for Teenagers

Daily Schedules for TeenagersTeaching teenagers to keep their own daily schedules is imperative. It is what they need to be able to do in order to be successful in life. If the parents are their calendar, they will never learn how to manage their lives as adults.

Schools have realized that this important. Starting now in elementary school, most kids are given an organizer to write down their homework assignments. They are also used to record items needed for school. So there is already a foundation to build on.

But as you know, there is more to keeping a daily schedule for teenagers. They may have a job, sports, music or club involvement that goes beyond the elementary school organizer. This requires much more skill training.

Getting organized is the first step. Such idea is discussed in this article.

To succeed in school and work teenagers need to know they are capable of doing a good job.
Teachers working daily with middle school and high school students report that the most
important “school supply” a teenager can bring to school is a “Can Do” attitude!
Help Your Teenager Get Organized
• Expect responsibility: Encourage your teenager to plan out a daily routine and stick to it.
• Schedule study time: Post a family calendar that schedules study time and school project deadlines,
athletic activities, mid-term dates, exam periods and report card deadlines.
• Keep track of assignments: Turning in assignments on time is essential and an assignment book is
the key. Encourage your teenager to write down all assignments and the dates due and check this
regularly to keep the work on schedule. Read the rest.
