Reviews

"Dr Korb's advice will help parents reduce day-to-day frustrations with homework, routines, clutter, and more.

Tanya Altmann, MD, FAAP, author of Baby and Toddler Basics

Bauer, MD, MPH, FAAP, behavioral pediatrician and blogger at "Let's Talk Kids Health"
"Dr Korb is to be commended for focusing parents' attention on their children's organizational capabilities as key components of success. His book is itself a model of organization, with (as Dr Korb would say) everything in its place." Robert Needlman, MD, coauthor of Dr. Spock's Baby and Child Care and professor of pediatrics, Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine

Organization is critically important, and Dr Korb gives hope for achieving it." Craig Pohlman, PhD, author of Revealing Minds and How Can My Kid Succeed in School? and chief executive officer, Southeast Psych

"Pediatrician and father of five Korb presents a useful and simple-to-follow set of steps for parents to take to foster organizational skills in their children. Korb provides suggestions and tasks geared to four main age groupsinfants, preschoolers (3--5 years), school-age children (5--12), and teenagersfor both parent and child. However, for each age group, the 'five steps' remain the same: 'be consistent,' 'introduce order,' 'give everything a place,' 'practice forward thinking,' and 'promote problem-solving.' Throughout, Korb includes scripts for productive parent-child conversations and skill-developing games geared to different ages. Korb also traces how, as children advance in age and organizational skills, parental roles change, from 'coach' to school-age children to 'manager' for middle schoolers, and 'consultant' for high schoolers. Korb's examples are educational, especially one he shares to illustrate overbearing parentingthat of a couple who gave their high schooler son, on average, five hours of help with homework each night, resulting in disaster when he left the parental umbrella and entered college. Korb thus shows both how adults can help and when and why they need to let 'go of control.' The result is a kind, supportive guide that parents and children alike can profit from as they grow together." Publishers Weekly
