At last, the solution for getting disorganized boys back on track.

Missed assignments. Lack of focus and enthusiasm. Falling grades. For too many boys and their frustrated parents, these are the facts of life. But they don't have to be.

Top academic couselor Ana Homayoun has helped turn even the most disorganized, scattered, and unfocused boys into successful young people who consistently meet their personal and academic challenges. She does this by getting back to basics- -starting with a simple fact: Most boys needs to be taught how to get organized, how to study, and-- most important--how to visualize, embrace and meet their own goals.

With an accessible and no-nonsense approach, Homayoun shows how to:

?Identify their son's disorganizational style
?Help him set academic and personal goals he cares about
?Design and establish the right "tools of the trade"
?Complete assignments without pulling all-nighters
?Help him tune out social pressure and fend off anxiety
Much more than a study guide, this insightful, user-friendly book provides a roadmap for the success too many boys have trouble finding--in school and in life.

This is a terrific book for those who have tween or teen boys who are chronically disorganized. She has a specific prescription for helping each boy get organized. She talks about the importance of convincing the boy it's in his best interest to do so. Tthe specific advice is wonderful, but convincing my son to follow her plan has been difficult.
