Time management is a challenge for everyone, but it is a particularly daunting challenge for middle and high school students. There is an expectation that at their age they should be independent and know how to get things done on their own. But teens are busier than ever. Between homework, school, afterschool activities, family, friends, jobs, and more, teens often find that their time is truly NOT their own. Add in the fact that they often lack the tools to manage their time; maybe it's a little unrealistic for parents to expect their teenagers to instinctively know how to manage time. "What's the Deal with Teens and Time Management" takes parents step-by-step through the basics of teaching their teens the time management skills they need to succeed-at school, at work and in life! This is a user-friendly guide full of best practice solutions for helping teens stay on top of their homework, avoid procrastination traps, get out the door in the morning with minimal conflict and manage the use of their electronics. In a readable, breezy and witty fashion, Josel opens the door to the world of time management, what it really means, why it's important and why your teen probably doesn't "get it." And throughout the book, Josel offers up the "Triple Ts" - her tried and true Tips, Tools and Techniques - to provide support and guidance for parents looking to help their teens understand, develop and implement time management skills. In this book, you'll learn: The FIVE mindsets parents need to start their teen on the journey of time management awareness. How to create a "Personal Homework Profile" to better understand how your teen tackles homework. How to help your teen create a time sense and develop "future awareness." How to pick an appropriate paper or electronic academic planner and how to properly plan their time. How to create a peaceful and calm morning routine to get your teen out the door in the morning without anxiety and frustration. Case studies, useful resources, Leslie's straight talk and much, much more! Time Management is a Life Skill that Doesn't Come Naturally to Everyone. It Can be Learned."

From the author of the highly successful Maybe You Know My Kid comes a desperately needed follow-up–the first comprehensive guide for dealing with the unique challenges of raising an adolescent with ADHD. Adolescence is a tumultuous turning point for everyone, but for teens with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, it can be especially challenging, and for some of their parents, downright terrifying. Predictably, stress ensues over inconsistent or poor school performance and over inevitable decisions regarding higher education and life after high school. Adolescents with ADHD get more traffic tickets, have higher school-expulsion and drop-out rates, and are more likely to experiment with alcohol and drugs. Maybe You Know My Teen brims with management strategies for parents new to ADHD as well as those who have coped with it throughout their child’s life. Explaining the roots of the disorder clearly and extensively, while discussing situations most likely to cause symptoms to manifest themselves, ADHD authority Mary Fowler presents step-by-step advice, along with in-depth personal stories and first-person advice from leading experts in the field. This is the one-of-a-kind lifesaver thousands have been awaiting.

Creative folks often know all too well that the muse doesn’t always strike when you want it to, or when the deadline for your next brilliant project is creeping up on you like an ill-fitting turtleneck. Originality doesn’t follow a time clock, even when you have to. While conventional time management books offer tons of instruction for using time wisely, they are traditionally organized in a linear fashion, which just isn’t helpful for the right-brain mind. In Time Management for the Creative Person, creativity guru Lee Silber offers real advice for using the strengths of artistic folks—like originality and resourcefulness—to adopt innovative time-saving solutions, such as: * Learning to say no when your plate is just too full * How to know when a good job, not a great one, is good enough * Making “to do” lists that include fun stuff, too—that way you won’t feel overwhelmed by work * Time-saving techniques around the house that give you more time to get your work done and more time to spend with your loved ones * The keys to clutter control that will keep your work space and your living space neat With these and lots of other practical tips, Lee Silber will help anyone, from the time-starved caterer rushing to prepare for her next party to the preoccupied painter who forgets when the electric bill is due, make the most of their time and turn the clock and the calendar into friends, not foes.

From domestic goddess to desperate housewife, What a Girl Wants? explores the importance and centrality of postfeminism in contemporary popular culture. Focusing on a diverse range of media forms, including film, TV, advertising and journalism, Diane Negra holds up a mirror to the contemporary female subject who finds herself centralized in commodity culture to a largely unprecedented degree at a time when Hollywood romantic comedies, chick-lit, and female-centred primetime TV dramas all compete for her attention and spending power. The models and anti-role models analyzed in the book include the chick flick heroines of princess films, makeover movies and time travel dramas, celebrity brides and bravura mothers, ‘Runaway Bride’ sensation Jennifer Wilbanks, the sex workers, flight attendants and nannies who maintain such a high profile in postfeminist popular culture, the authors of postfeminist panic literature on dating, marriage and motherhood and the domestic gurus who propound luxury lifestyling as a showcase for the ‘achieved’ female self.
