Keep in mind how daunting some of the work may seem after all those homework-free days. When the work seems challenging to your child, help them to remain persistent and put forth their best effort. They may just need a little extra boost of confidence to help them get a handle on their work.
Just because something is hard doesn't mean it's okay to give up. Often times the hardest accomplishments are the ones we are most proud of achieving. Activities like martial arts are fun for kids and help them understand road blocks and the importance of sticking to multiple goals.
"Because of karate, my son has experienced a growing confidence in his ability to tackle his school work," Christine and karate mom says. "Key buzzwords like 'persistence' and 'never give up' have taught him to work through difficult assignments."
