After the buzz and excitement of Spring Break it can be challenging to get your kids back into the swing of things when school starts up again. While visions of  nice weather days and new video gaming systems dance in their heads, how are you supposed to get them to concentrate on academics?  Spring Break  has have flown by, but with all the distractions a vacation week is more than enough time for them to lose momentum in their studies.

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."

It is true that it is difficult to get right back on track after days of no home works. It is good to instill in them early on the values of hard work and persistence. I completely agree with this statement: "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". Another thing that may help motivate them is by giving small rewards as they achieve the smaller goals.

I personally believe most of the things a child learns in school he cannot really apply after college except extra curricular activities. Sports and Music teach them a lot about discipline. Team work is learned in a relaxed way. There is no pressure to excel because it is not really looked as a prerequisite to academic leadership. But the things that can be developed like not letting any co-worker sink with a failed ship can be applied in adulthood.

The first time I came here, less than 10 seconds the display is perfectly open, and the loading is completed less than 20 seconds and to open the article only took about 7 seconds. So I think this is very fast! Incredible! Trying to maintain!
