        The Organised Teenager

        Every day teenagers are faced with the tricky juggle of high school, home, sport and friends, along with a part-time job and day-to-day life activities, which all demand that teens have organising skills and habits that are easy to use, and part of their success tool kit. But these executive function skills need to be taught, they don’t magically appear, and that’s where The Organised Teenager comes in to save the day.

        Too many teenagers are crumbling under the weight of unplanned disorganisation, and are feeling the negative impact on their mental and emotional wellbeing. Quite by accident, teenagers are finding themselves spending too much time procrastinating and in turn feeling overwhelmed and stressed, which without question puts pressure on the entire family. No parent wants their teenager or family to feel this way. Find out more.
