Just so you know who you'll be working with, as a current college student, I understand how crucial it is to be organized and on top of assignments. However, my journey through middle and high school was often filled with stress and overwhelm because I didn't quite have a system set up and I felt like I needed to be a great example in school as the oldest sibling. Once I was taught simple principles about breaking down projects, using a planner, and decluttering everything from my room to my backpack, my life was changed! I created these programs so that every parent would have the resources to support their students.
STEP for Students
This powerful program is geared towards middle and high school students. Featuring videos, photos, printables, and easy instructions--all created when I was a high school student, this resource is a parent-geared training manual that will show you exactly how to teach your students the following:
The Get-It-Done Homework Guide: Do you find that your student doesn't know (or doesn't care) what they should be working on each day--which is ultimately hurting their grades? I'll show you how to help your student set up simple tools so the assignments feel totally doable.
The Easy-to-Clean-Your-Bedroom Plan: Are there piles and piles of "things" in your student's bedroom--making it hard to find what they need and driving YOU crazy? I'll help your student create a simple map and walk them through the clean-up (student-to student) with fun videos that make the process seamless.
The "Breakdown Guide" to Projects & Goals: Are you secretly hoping your student will set and achieve meaningful goals this year...but you're not sure if they feel confident moving forward independently? I'll show you how to mentor them with a tutorial on creating bite-sized steps that work even with the busiest schedule.
The Low-Tech Guide to Digital Files & Email Management: Are you finding that your student's school work is WAY more digitized than yours ever was? I'll teach you how to work by their side to set up a foundation that will serve them well throughout all their time in school.
This brand-new program is (obviously) geared towards college students. I created this because, as I moved past high school, I found that my peers were looking for quick, visual solutions to their major pain points.
The entire program consists of high-quality, fun videos (between 5 to 15 minutes in length) that fall into these categories:
Organizing a College Dorm/Apartment
Planning an Entire College Semester with Digital Tools
Completing Multi-Step Projects
Following Up and Setting Calendar Reminders
Setting Up Digital Folders
And while your college student can definitely go through this program independently, you will most likely enjoy the videos, as well, and you can be a great support!
For the best, most relatable fit for your student, we recommend you purchase the program that corresponds to their education level. (STEP for Students is definitely for a younger audience, and Organized for College is tailored specifically for those in a higher-learning/job setting.)
Here are a couple of photos to inspire you as you take this next step for your student. "Being messy" or having a disorganized life doesn't have to be in your child's future, and you have the potential to make a huge difference. I can't wait to support you along the way!
