PSP Executive Function Workshop: Creating Routines that Help Your Child Thrive!

Please join Park Slope Parents for this workshop for parents with
middle school and high school children aged 11 - 18. 

Executive Functions and Parenting: Creating Routines that Help Your Child Thrive
at The Old Stone House on February 12th from 6:30pm - 8:30pm. 


  • Is your child easily distracted? 
  • Do they have trouble focusing at school and organizing their assignments? 
  • Is time management an issue no matter what you do to help?
  • Are you at a loss as a parent for how to help without nagging?
  • Do you worry about how they will function as adults in the real world?

Executive functions are the skills that allow us to move our thinking and learning into action.

For adolescents, these are the skills that allow them to modulate and cope with big feelings, show what they know on assignments, work effectively on homework and multi-step projects, and reflect on their actions.

As parents, there are routines we can create and strategies we can use at home to support our children’s developing executive function skills.

Join Christina Young for a discussion that will cover:

  • A broad overview of executive functions and organizational skills. 
  • What parents specifically need to know about executive functions.
  • How to incorporate intentional transitions, emotional co-regulation and modeling the use of tools into your home routines.
  • Creating resources for children that will help them cope emotionally, intellectually, and socially through their school years and beyond. 


It’s hard parenting work, and the payoff is fewer meltdowns and power struggles and more moments of flow and connection at home.
