School's Out for the Summer

Now that school is out and kids that are used of a set schedule may have a bit too much time on their hands. It is a good idea to sit them down and set a few ground rules, such as how much time they can watch TV, use the computer and play video games. Research has shown that kids that usually get at least some exercise from regular daily Phys Ed classes while in school may be prone to gaining weight over the summer if they become too sedentary. Try and get your kids to spend some time everyday being active. Try your best to lead by example, and show them that exercise can be fun. If your kids see that you are active everyday they are more likely to follow suit.

Happy Parenting
