Event description

Description

Do you have children who forget to put socks on before shoes, over-react to small problems or setbacks, impulsively react to others, or get distracted and fail to finish what they start? Do the adolescents or adults (including parents!) in your home get lost, show up late, easily lose their cool, and always seem unprepared? These and similar behaviors are related to Executive Functioning, or the “mental manager” that controls and direct our behavior, emotions, and actions. These skills develop over time and may be able to be improved or built upon with simple to implement games and strategies.
