WALKING WITH A FUN PURPOSE WITH CHILDREN.May 30, 2013
Walking for fitness alone doesn’t always motivate children. Think of a fun destination to visit, a playground, a park, etc., or ICE CREAM! (Only kidding!) When my children were young, I always thought of destinations as the motivating force to have a family walk; sometimes it was the zoo, or the merry go round, and YES every once in a while, I would reluctantly tell them that they could get that funny face ice cream with all the unnatural colors in it.
Most importantly, get out during the warm sunny days and move as a family. Appreciate the late sunsets and make those happy family memories.
