Raising an Organized Child

Raising an Organized Child

5 Steps to Boost Independence, Ease Frustration, and Promote Confidence

Organized children are raised, not born.

That’s the philosophy behind Dr. Korb's confidence-building, sanity-saving new book. Parents who despair at the thought of another morning spent helping their child look for a shoe's mate or dread another teacher note about homework completed but never turned in will find hope here!

As a developmental and behavioral pediatrician and the father of 5, Dr. Korb knows a little something about raising kids who are confident, independent, and self-reliant. Raising an Organized Child will help parents develop their children's organized thinking skills and executive function. These skills are tied to developmental milestones, so whether a child is an infant or a teenager, it's never too late (or too early!) to foster organization in him or her and harmony in the whole family.

Listen to Dr. Korb talk about the book on Kansas City Live!

Damon Korb, M.D., a board-certified behavioral and developmental pediatrician, examines the neurodevelopmental brain functions that determine how a child learns, behaves and socializes. With the publication of Raising an Organized Child, Korb aims to provide parents with the tools they need to help children develop their executive function skills.

Dr. Korb has more than 25 years of pediatric practice experience, including nearly 20 years focusing on child behavior and development, while establishing three unique California clinics that serve children with developmental variations. Caring for thousands of families who had a struggling child -- and raising five children of his own -- has given him a unique perspective about what works, and what doesn’t, when it comes to parenting.

Currently serving as the President for the Society of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics, Dr. Korb is also Adjunct Clinical Faculty at Stanford University School of Medicine.
