Positive Changes

By Gina Cortese
Armed with a few techniques and tips, you can make a difference in your child’s life. There are a few things to remember as we embark on the road to increased physical activity.

  • It is most important for you to be a positive role model . Modeling is one of the fastest and most efficient ways to encourage change. The good news is that both you and your child will be more active. You will experience the many benefits to your health while helping your child develop healthful, life-long habits. And often this is the motivation you need to get going and to stay consistent as well. If you don’t do it for yourself, at least do it for your children.

  • Activity needs to be age appropriate . It makes no sense for a six-year-old to run on a treadmill, nor is it fun. Between the ages of five and 13, activity should be focused on developing movement skills such as running, balance, jumping, kicking, and throwing. It should be varied and broad in nature. Luckily, lots of games are appropriate. When children enter adolescence, from 13 to 18, it is then appropriate to focus on areas where your child may have a particular talent or interest, if so desired.

  • Do not make exercise a punishment. This will cause children to dislike activity. The goal is to encourage activity for a lifetime.
