Be Patient. Strategy #4June 8, 2013
We want the best for our child and we want results quickly. This
can lead to your child becoming anxious and eventually shutting down and refusing to be active.
If you feel you have tried just about everything you can, then I suggest you look at getting a
child’s fitness professional to help you out.
1. PLAY! Focus on limiting competition, building self-esteem, and improving their physical
confidence. Not all children like to compete. Substitute the word “play” for the word
2. Choice: Allow your child to come up with choices as to what fitness games they would
like to play. This gives them a sense of ownership and they feel empowered.
