328: Calendaring Habits to Get in Gear Before School Starts

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.
