328: Calendaring Habits to Get in Gear Before School Starts

3 Aug

Some students are super resistant to using calendars. What can parents do to nurture the habit of calendaring?

Tune in to hear more details about the following 4 tips from Gretchen:

  • Make sure they HAVE a digital calendar and that calendar is the main one on their phone and computer. 
  • Make sure that there is a habit amongst all family members of sharing calendar events with each other. 
  • When a schedule change happens (like starting up a new sport), sit down TOGETHER and make sure that all pertinent dates, once you have them, are put in everyone’s calendar. 
  • Consider having a family meeting every week for 15 minutes during which everyone takes out their calendars and discusses the plan for the week.
