The way learning and living is complicated when we have trouble with organization

What really matters is forward motion, not graduating “on time.” Even though significant people in the life of the student are very much looking forward to the ceremony, the photos, the gifts and the celebration, if the student is not ready, all that can be a whopping amount of pressure.  The celebration can wait until the student has completed the work, and the love can be delivered sensitively as encouragement.  Here are a few suggestions:

  • Offer typing assistance
  • Smile
  • Ask what is feeling insurmountable?
  • Offer practical assistance like doing the laundry, food, coffee, etc.
  • Keeping distractions at bay
