As they get older, it can be a challenge for kids to get enough daily activity. Reasons include increasing demands of school, a feeling among some kids that they aren’t good at sports, a lack of active role models, and busy working families.
And even if kids have the time and the desire to be active, parents may not feel comfortable letting them freely roam the neighborhood as kids did generations ago. So their opportunities might be limited.
In spite of these barriers, parents can instill a love of activity and help kids fit it into their everyday lives. Doing so can set healthy patterns that will last into adulthood.
So we celebrated my Little One’s Fifth Birthday :-), and the first place I took him (which I do on occasion) was the GYM, to help mama with the counting of her exercises – hehehe
I am proud to say that he has started a change in his eating habits and sports is always encouraged
