How to help your teen master time management

Is your teen ready for their first job? Take this quiz now.

 Encourage a realistic schedule.

Your teen might think they have to forego time with their friends or their favorite hobby in order to work while they go to school. And, if your teen struggles with their schoolwork, a job might not be the best solution for them right now.

You can help them make a realistic schedule so they can still do the things they love, keep sane, and start gaining their independence. Work shouldn't be the only thing they do outside of school.

 Monitor their workload and stress levels.

You should keep a close eye on your teen to make sure they are handling the added pressure of work.

Some signs to look out for:
  • Withdrawing from social or favorite pastimes
  • Irritability (more than the normal early morning grumpiness)
  • Calling in sick to work or school often


If you notice any of these changes, talk to your teen and help them find a healthy balance that works for them. Not every teen can handle the added stress.

 Give them a planner.

Download and print as many copies of each planner template you (or your teen) need.

Our planner template includes monthly, weekly, and daily calendar templates, budgeting sheets, workout planner, etc. Includes 21 pages. Size - US letter.

Use it to help them plan their time visually, which makes it much easier to maintain a balance.
