The Procrastinating Child: A Handbook for Adults to Help Children Stop Putting Things Off was sold to Canada, Japan, France, Korea, China and the United Kingdom and featured in TIME magazine even before it was published.

The Procrastinating Child is the first and only book on the subject of help for procrastinating children. Isn’t that ironic? Don’t we all know families (maybe even our own) where the parents have spent years trying to figure out what to do with a child who forever procrastinates? They tell the child “You can get better grades. Do your homework” or “You’re not coming out till you clean your room.” But the child feels overwhelmed and doesn’t know how to accomplish any of this.

Often children think that others were born with the ability to get things done on time, but they were not blessed with that talent.

And no one has taught the parents how to help the child “do it now”.

This is the right book for the right time.

The Clutter-Busting Handbook will be published in April 2005
