Here is the great mystery of modern family life: Your kids' calendars are packed and your family never seems to rest, and yet, your children don't actually physically move all that much. There's an awful lot of sitting going on across America-sitting in front of video games, computer screens, televisions, and tiny cell phone screens. For kids of all ages, "play" happens in the den and not in the backyard. Exercise is becoming as antiquated as a VHS player.
Tweens can't tear themselves away from their cell phones, school-aged kids as young as kindergarten are buried under homework, and preschoolers are often plopped in front of a TV to buy a few moments of calm. Even those kids who play team sports on the weekends aren't exerting themselves all that much over the other five days of the week.
The result is that our kids aren't learning a crucial lesson: that exercise can give them more energy, improve their brain power, boost their self-esteem, make them stronger, and ward off health issues like obesity, heart disease, and diabetes. Oh, and did we mention that exercise can actually be fun?
