  • Maybe talk to her adviser? (S)He will probably give the same advise you did, bu tit's always different coming from someone who isn't mom. Also there might be some info at the school library.

  • You told her how that's all you can do. She is a grown women now. She needs to take charge of her own life. You know. Live and learn

  • She's got to do it on her own. All the schedules in the world aren't going to help if she isn't willing to take the time to work on it.

  • I'm in college. It isn't so much about organization as it is about managing time. I'm very disorganized, but that has never stopped me from passing my classes. I have a time management problem, and obviously I have a son. I have to turn the computer off so it doesn't distract me, lol. Try to help her manage her time.

  • Many campuses have a center where students can go to seek out help from professionals for time management skills. Many schools have free counseling. These counselors can help with time management as well. Sometimes it is a matter of CBT - cognitive (the way we think about or approach projects/ scheduling), behavioral (how we act on our thoughts/plans), therapy. Having to balance work, school, and papers/exams/projects is enormously difficult for many of us. So remain supportive, buy her a really good college student planner, and encourage her to make lists. I always list everything. I have a mini notebook in my purse to write lists of what I need to do every day. As I remember something I write it down and then cross it off as it happens. Good luck and be proud you have a child pursuing higher education. Good job mom.

  • Get her a blackberry phone or a palm pilot. But she needs to figure out how to get organized on her own. You can't do that for her forever.
