The Procrastinating Child: A Handbook for Adults to Help Children Stop Putting Things Off by Rita Emmett

Parents, grandparents, teachers, supervisors, even baby-sitters, can be driven to distraction by a childs repeated procrastination. However, their distress is nothing compared to the toll procrastination takes on the childeroding self-confidence, undermining self-esteem and relationships, increasing anxiety, and paving the way for similar behavior as an adult that can be even more costly. Helping a child stop procrastinating is one of the best gifts an adult can share, and Rita Emmetts informative and engaging new book is the place to start. Based on her own procrastination and parenting seminars and on interviews with hundreds of people about what works and what doesnt, Emmett offers proven techniques to defuse the frictions caused by youthful procrastination. Her central point is that, far from being a character flaw, procrastinationin children as in adultsis usually a habit that can be changed. Whether avoiding chores or homework or neglecting goalsor in dozens of other situationschildren of all ages procrastinate for many reasons: - feeling overwhelmed or confused and not knowing where to begin -nbsp;lack of motivation -nbsp;a subversive desire to assert control by not doing whats asked -nbsp;a dislike of the task -nbsp;subconscious fears or anxieties about failure -nbsp;poor time management skills In each case, Emmett provides strategies for breaking through a childs defense mechanisms or reluctance to talk, and for establishing rules and guidelines that encourage young children and teenagers alike to face obligations in a timely way. Lighthearted and rewarding, The Procrastinating Child is an invaluable resource.
