I heartily recommend it not only to parents, but to others working on understanding and overcoming habits of procrastination.

Dona Matthews, Ph.D., Co-author of Being Smart about Gifted Education

Most people don’t realize what’s possible because their procrastination, perfectionism, and fear of failure get in the way. Not Now, Maybe Later is a wonderful resource for parents, teachers, managers, and yourself.

Scott Barry Kaufman, Ph.D. Scientific Director, The Imagination Institute, University of Pennsylvania




This book is written for parents and teachers as a guide to understanding procrastination, primarily in children, and to provide tips for helping children develop skills to improve their productivity. Procrastination relates to many important aspects of life, including success and failure, school-related and other activities, an individual’s thoughts and feelings, and motivation. Not Now Maybe Later provides lots of straight-forward strategies for children to use (now, not later).
