Kids and Exercise
Just a quick word on an article I read today. It said we must get kids to exercise more. When I was a kid the idea of us having to exercise was a nonsense. We were never in. We ran about from morning till night.
But then we weren't ferried back and forwards to school or the mall or where ever before plonking ourselves in front of computer games or TV for the rest of the night.
Stop driving your kids everywhere, let them get the bus. Much more enjoyable for them with more chance of increasing their social skills and even understanding of themselves as they become more independent. In fact, isn't that our job? Making kids Independent of us?
