It’s never too late for your teen to learn how to be on time. But it will take a big dose of help from you.

Buy a big calendar with plenty of space to write. Each day, have your teen list all the things she has to do for school. Then have her guess how long it will take her to finish each task.

As she does each job on the list, have her make a note of how long it actually took her to do it. The next time she has to write an English theme, she can look back over her records. If the last paper took four hours, that’s how long she’d better plan to write this one.
