Your Child's Physical Health Needs a Big Boost At This Time

Team AckoFeb 8, 2024

By now, your child's muscle development is in full swing and hence, a much essential boost is necessary. This is why getting your kid to do adequate exercise is important. Anyone who's seen kids in a playground knows that most are naturally physically active and love to move around. But what might not be apparent is that climbing to the top of a slide or swinging from the monkey bars can help lead kids to a lifetime of being active.

    What you need to know

    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, you may not feel comfortable letting your child freely roam the neighborhood as kids did generations ago. So their opportunities might be limited.

    Instilling physical movement into kids’ routines

    In spite of these barriers, you 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. Healthy, physically active kids are also more likely to be academically motivated, alert, and successful. And physical competence builds self-esteem at every age.
