I know I just gave you tips on how to help you kids fight the summer blues, but when the summer blues has turned into summer fever, and you need to help your child sit and focus on their homework, creativeplayplus.com has a whole bunch of tips to do the trick (and the homework).

Its easy to encourage your kids to get out and play, but its a whole other ballgame getting them to do their homework.
