The following is a guest post from Medical Educator and director of Boys Town Press about kids and procrastination. I am happy to have had the privilege of sharing this post with all of you today. Let’s be honest – we have probably all dealt with a child who procrastinates far too much – and because of that, we, as parents, are looking for ways to help them not procrastinate. Read on to learn some different ways we as parents can help them be more on the ball and less lax about everything in life.

How many of us have had the joy of being told that science project, you know…the one with the flour plaster volcanoes…is actually due tomorrow? Yes, your child knew when it was due three weeks ago and even mentioned it once to you in passing, but did you really imagine that you would be reminded about it at 8:00 p.m. the night before it had to be done? I know you weren’t expecting it because my wife and I were never expecting the same sort of surprises when we became victims of our son’s procrastination.
