Description

Most children (and adults) experience bouts of procrastination or avoidance behavior. It's human nature to put off tasks that are undesirable. But when those behaviors develop into a pattern that has a negative impact on that person or those in his or her life, it's time to work on developing the ability to take initiative.

Blake is busy! He’s always moving and always has something going on! So why is it that people keep insisting that he do things he doesn’t want to do? Why does he have to clean his room RIGHT NOW? He’ll get to it EVENTUALLY!

Luckily for Blake, his mom is there to work with him on the important skill of taking initiative. And she should know – she says her dad had to work with her on that same task when she was young! Blake and Mom explore WHY Blake doesn’t want to get started, and they go through a few simple steps on how to take initiative and get things done. Will Blake be able to use these steps to get started on his work at home and school? Find out in the fifth storybook of the very popular Executive FUNction series. Tips for parents and educators to help children overcome procrastination are included at the end of the picture book. 31 pgs.
