Raising Healthy Children

Posted by Demond Thompson on July 5, 2010

It never ceases to amaze me when I see children that are overweight or obese.  Nothing breaks my heart more knowing that there are children out there who will not reach the age expectancy of their parents.  To me it’s a form of child abuse, and I’ll rant about that more in a future post.  The point of this one is to offer a solution.

We have all heard and read that we all need 60 minutes of activity.

“Easier said than done,” you say?

I say better done than said.

Yes, I understand that you’re busy.  I understand that time is a precious commodity, and we want to enjoy our children and the growing up process.  I am here to make it easier for you.

Here are some activities that children already love to do:

  • Bicycling
  • Dancing
  • Jumping rope
  • Rollerblading
  • Running
  • Skipping
  • Swimming

With it being summer time, let your children go out and play and enjoy life!

Here’s the best part:

You can go out and do it with them.

Your children want something more valuable than toys and ice cream, and that is to spend time with you.  Some of my favorite memories growing up are with me spending time with my dad in the various sports I played as a kid.  That’s what matters most.

Make today your day!
