Helping Kids Who Procrastinate

“I’ll do it later.” That’s normally how it starts. “I have plenty of time.” That’s how it continues. “I can’t do it! I don’t have enough time.” That’s how it ends. Welcome to the world of procrastination.

In this week’s Youtube video I talk to kids who procrastinate and offer tools and tips to get out of the vicious cycle procrastination brings with it.

Anxious kids are either one extreme or the other. Kids who procrastinate want to kick the can down the road until the road comes to an abrupt stop.

Unfortunately most of these kids are already anxious and overwhelmed and this unhealthy coping mechanism just adds to their stress.

In this Youtube video I talk to kids and teens about how to build skills to stop procrastinating and reduce their stress.
