  • Effective Self-Management Systems & Solutions…  It is never too early or too late to introduce habits to your child that can be sustained over a lifetime…  Leading to self confidence, resilience and the ability to make good decisions.  Nellie will share simple and effective systems she has used in her home with her children from toddler to adulthood which have effectively prepared them for achievement and independence.  Nellie will demonstrate examples of tasks that help toddlers through adults develop life skills and adaptive skills by learning how to organize, focus, attend, multi-task, emulate, generalize; while promoting ownership and self-reliance.  This enables your child and young adult to take responsibility, develop their talents and strengths, while participating in meeting society’s expectation at every level of their development.
