Time to get physical

I am often asked about how much physical activity children should be receiving daily.  And we will of course consider various guidelines that are in place to advise you of this.   But when it comes to times to get physical, this is about so much more than an allotted period of time to blow off steam. 

Your child’s physical health is strongly linked to their mental health

In this session we will be looking at the importance of physical activity.  We will look at how much is advised and what this time is best spent doing and we will look at how you can encourage your child away from screens.

With the habits establishing now indicating their physical and mental health on into adulthood.

With childhood obesity higher than it has ever been, there is clearly a need to get our children more active. But there is so much more fundamental growth and development going on every time your child uses their bodies. During this session we will look at how physical activities during their early childhood offers precious opportunities to further this growth.

This session is taken from our course: What Every Parent Should Know
