How do parents teach important adult skills to their teens when they may not want to listen?

Executive functioning skills, such as the ability to plan, organize, demonstrate insight and grasp the big picture influence how a young person transitions into the adult world; yet, there is an epidemic of disorganized teens.

Damon Korb, MD, Founder, and Director of the Center for Developing Minds and author of Raising an Organized Child, 5 Steps to Boost Independence, Ease Frustration, and Promote Confidence, offers guidance on how to encourage them to practice the skills that they will need to launch into their adult life.

This was a Connections California event. Connections California, a project of Parents Helping Parents – Silicon Valley, is made possible thanks to generous support from Santa Clara Family Health Plan.
