Kids grow up fast and parents often get too caught up in daily activities to think about their child’s future. Writing down all your experiences, hopes, and lessons for your future adult child will help give them a better understanding of how you were at that age and what they should expect in the coming years. Your child is young now, but what do you want to tell them when they become an adult?
Exercise keeps kids physically and mentally healthy. Children need at least one hour of physical activity a day to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Getting active improves the immune system, makes bones stronger, and decreases risks of diseases later in life. Starting exercise at a young age can prevent certain types of cancers and will help blood pressure and bone density in the future. From rollerblading to joining a sports team, there are many options to get kids out and about.
The holiday season is often called the season of giving. We remind our children that it is important to give to others less fortunate than us around Thanksgiving and Christmas because not everyone gets presents or has warm clothes to wear in the cold months. Parents can carry on the season of giving and make it a year-round occasion that kids will look forward to.
Eating healthy is essential for kids’ growth and physical development. The right nutrients help to gain more energy, improve mental performance, and boost the immune system. Just saying “avoid junk food” is not enough to convince kids to make healthy choices. These tips for healthy eating will get you and your child on the right path.
