The Scattered Charmer


The Scattered Charmer is happy-go-lucky and fun to be around. He does okay academically, but at a cost, because his forgetfulness and general laissez-faire attitude means you're spending far too much time dropping off forgotten homework assignments or hunting up study sheets.

Homayoun's Tip: Scattered Charmers don't know how to become organized or create a system that would work (because nobody has ever shown them one), and that leads to trouble being consistent and following through on good intentions. The single most important organizational tool your son will need is an effective, organized binder, preferably one for each subject. Read more about Homayoun's organization tips.
