How Do I Get My Parents to Listen?

Happy Monday!

It’s been awhile (more on that next week)!

In this week’s video I discuss how kiddos can get their parents..well, off their back. Do you ever feel like your parents are nagging? Ever wonder what would help? Parents, do you ever feel like you are nagging?

In this video I share how, as a teen you might get your parent to listen to you a little bit more. It does involve a little bit of planning (and I share how to do that as well)–but I think the payoff might be well worth it!

Watch more to find out the deets!

As always, I’m curious if any of you tried this or would like some help with it. For more tips and tools for how to study please feel free to schedule your complimentary Destressify Yourself session!

Wishing you all a wonderful week!

Five Simple Steps to Get in Action!

Welcome back [for those of you who had a break this week]. I know how hard it is to come back to school after a break and wanted to honor that with this video in which I compare going on a bike ride to…studying for finals. What steps do you find helpful? Let me know in the comments below or send me an email!

  1. Gather your gear (materials}
  2. Stay in the moment.
  3. Adapt as needed.
  4. Celebrate your accomplishments.
  5. Rely on your team!

Need someone to celebrate with you? Send me an email. I’m happy to be on your team. Also, if you need a boost in preparing for finals see below:

Success! You're on the list.

Thanks, Mom!

The last time my mom came to visit she did my dishes. I wasn’t so happy. She’s coming to visit again this week and I’m really excited because she’s going to help me clean out my closet (she doesn’t know it yet, hee hee!) What’s the difference between the two? Why was I not so happy when she did my dishes, but now I’m excited for her to help me clean out my closet? Watch the video to find out why…

What kinds of questions do you think would be okay for your parents to ask you? Parents, what kinds of questions have you been successful in asking your teens about homework?

Parents, have you been successful in asking your teens about homework? What has worked?

For a fabulous book on this topic I recommend: The Self/ Driven Child by William Stixrud and Ned Johnson.

The Wacky Hair-do

Sooo…this week I talk about how to make sure that you check for assignments that you think you’ve missed…however, I couldn’t help but notice as I reviewed the video that there’s a little piece of hair sticking out, ha! The morning I made this video it was very early in the morning…usually my best thinking time. While my piece of hair sticking out has little to do with the content, perhaps it’s a good lesson in…being yourself or at least…a little humor to start off your week.
Enjoy and as always, if you’d like to talk more about study skills (hair is obviously not my expertise, although I do love my hair stylist) please feel free to contact me here.
