Motivation, focus, and time management skills are essential components of students’ success in middle school, high school, and college. In this informative presentation, Dr. Wray will provide parents with tips to help their students excel both inside and outside the classroom by improving these crucial academic and life skills. During this presentation, we will discuss...

  • The #1 predictor of students’ success (Hint: it’s not intelligence!)

  • Why trying to motivate students often doesn’t work, and what to do instead

  • How to help your kids stay focused and avoid distractions

  • The real reason most students do things at the last minute, and how to help them escape the procrastination trap

Parents will leave the workshop with actionable ideas & strategies they can use to help their kids develop the skills, habits, and mindset they need to achieve their goals this semester. There will also be a Q&A session at the end.
