How To Encourage Children To Exercise
|Self Development : Parenting|
Getting some children to exercise is very hard. Particularly if they are used to the sedentary lifestyle the idea of exercising can be something that is not very appealling to them - and therefore that they don't want to do.
So what can you do to encourage exercise?
Well, what most kids are prepared to do is sit in front of the TV and watch pretty much anything. So get an exercise bike - they need only cost around £50 - and plonk your child on that for 20 minutes next time they are watching a TV program, and if they refuse then make it clear they get no TV.
This way they can combine exercise whilst being distracted by the TV so might not even notice they are doing exercise!
