Looking for more ideas to get your children active and fit? We've been hearing this week from educators who tell us that physical fitness is key to a child's development and may even help with academics. Here are a few other sources of information on fitness for kids:
offers suggestions on building confidence in young girls, being a good sport, and even how yoga can benefit children.
gives minimum times for physical activity and offers lots of common sense advice, like keeping televisions out of children's bedrooms.
is a site run by the American Academy of Pediatrics. Its fitness articles include when to safely start weight training, other exercise safety issues and suggestions on getting families fit together.
is a sponsoring video resource that families can use at home. The instructor has child development ideas that work for both typical and special needs children.
