Back to School Responsibilities Again

It's that time of year when mom and dad look for ways to improve their child's academic standing, during the upcoming scholastic year.

There are many options to weigh in such as: new school clothes, school supplies, peer pressure, after school care, homework, league sports, and transportation.

This is time of year for great changes, but here are two changes that will impact your child for life, and require a bit of work and commitment on your part.

1. Expose your child or children to some kind of faith: The faith of your parents, your faith, your spouse's faith, your partner's faith, or the faith that you left behind. Set an example and start attending a temple, mosque, shrine, or church, right now.

If your children have nothing to believe in, will they have a happy, productive, and successful life? You already know the answer to the question.

It does require work to teach children. Anybody can let years go by, and teach their children nothing.

Children usually copy the behavior and habits of their parents. It is part of their basic programming, so remember they will copy everything.

2. Find a hobby, that suits your child, and have them stick to it. Your child will benefit immensely from this decision.

It could be dance, Yoga, martial arts, music, gymnastics, boy scouts, girl scouts, or something else, but whatever it is, your child should initially like it. At that point have them make a commitment and don't allow them to quit unless there is a solid reason.

If a coach, teacher, or tutor is abusive, that's an understandable reason to leave, but you can always find another coach or hobby. In truth, if you allow laziness, in your child, you will receive it. Children will usually follow the path of least resistance, but they crave structure.

My experience has been: Children constantly turn their attitudes around, for the better, in martial arts and Yoga classes. Due to the fact, that there is a formal set of existing rules and a standard code of conduct.

Don't allow them to sit in a corner with a video game and a television, except for rare occasions. There are too many good things going on in the "real world," that need their attention.

These two changes will instill fortitude, perseverance, and goal-setting skills that last a lifetime. The rewards can be endless, for your whole family.

In The News:

A shocking video shows a great white shark proudly carrying around its latest victim — a dolphin — when suddenly an even bigger great white swoops in to steal the meal straight from its mouth.
A North Carolina couple taking a walk on Wrightsville Beach in North Carolina on Tuesday came across a rare, prehistoric find: a megalodon tooth.
A host of historic artifacts, including a lock of Napoleon’s hair, will be up for auction in the U.K. on Saturday.
Scientists at MIT have discovered a galaxy cluster that they say is “hiding in plain sight.”
The megalodon, which went extinct millions of years ago, was the largest shark ever documented and one of the largest fish on record. The scientific name, Carcharocles megalodon, means "giant tooth." And for good reason: Its massive teeth give scientists major clues about what the creature was like and when it died off.
It sounded too good to be true.
He was probably in his 20s and died nearly 6,000 years ago in Egypt.
Scientists are seeking a solution to the red tide crisis that that has been devastating marine life on Florida’s Gulf Coast.
In a blog post, NASA said that it may never again have contact with the Opportunity rover, after the craft got caught up in a Martian dust storm in the middle of June.
The remains of a 99-million-year old beetle have been discovered, perfectly preserved in amber, fossilized resin that originates from the bark of a tree. It is believed to be the world's oldest insect pollinator and the amber provides a fascinating look at how life was nearly 100 million years ago.
