Losing My Mind

Dear Amy,
Lately, I have been forgetting my homework assignments. I just got a demerit notice. How can I remember my assignments? ….. Fear of Forgetfulness

Dear Fear of Forgetfulness,
I see your problem. I think a good way to organize yourself would be to write a list of your assignments. Put your assignments in categories such as High Priorities, Medium Priorities, and Low Priorities, and tackle them in that order.  Or if that doesn’t work, try using post-it notes. If your need to remember something like turning in a specific homework assignment, put a post-it in a spot where you will see it. If you put it on your doormat you will be reminded when you step on it. It might seem crazy at first, but it will get you in the habit of getting your work done.  If you need a reminder to put something you need in your backpack, try putting the post-it on the bathroom counter. You will see it as you brush your hair before school.
