The struggle isn't real
Your teen's homework habits and procrastination most likely aren't the problem. At least, they aren't the source of their struggle.
We watch parents obsess over time management strategies and homework completion, and focus all their efforts on the wrong problem.
What's the real struggle?
Audit this for truth: when trying to overcome academic problems by focusing on current struggles isn't working, then the problem is not today's homework.
It's fundamental skills from previous grades.
You can get a lot of data from tests, assignments and homework problems that tell you your child is struggling.
Conventional wisdom says concepts taught in your teen's current grade level are the root of the issue.
Conventional wisdom is wrong.
For most students, their comprehension of this year's school work isn't the problem. Their problem is friction in applying core skills to current work.
Great students eliminate friction first
Winning students work tirelessly to eliminate friction and master fundamental skills from previous grades in order to accelerate growth. Until friction is removed, academic efforts will never be able to provide the results they deserve.
Removing friction reduces test anxiety and study time and increases the effectiveness of all of your teen's academic efforts. And, when your teen's academic advantage is a strong foundation, they stress less while achieving the success they deserve.
