Today more than ever we are all very busy with the day to day tasks of our lives. We have so many things to do with our jobs and our families it is a miracle that we do not all go crazy.
And now this type of lifestyle is starting to effect our children in negative ways. Today children are increasingly becoming more like adults. Most adults do not get proper exercise or nutrition. Our children learn from us and out society. Today they spend many hours in school and in after school activities that take up a large majority of their time.
That is why it is so vital that kids get physical education in public and private schools today. The physical activity is a much needed change of pace. From sitting in the class room all day at some desk or going home after school and sitting in front of a computer screen playing video games.
Today more than any other time in history children in the United States are overweight. And some are seriously overweight and considered obese. This can lead to all sorts of problems such as diabetes, hormone imbalances and other negative physical outcomes.
So this is why I believe that it is vital to have good physical education programs which require our kids to get active. That way they can get some exercise that is so vitally needed by them. Another reason too, is because not only are our children not getting enough exercise they are not getting proper nutrition. They are eating the wrong things that promote weight gain and health problems.
So, make sure your child is enrolled in a good physical education class to ensure that he or she gets some much needed physical activity. The benefits can be monumental and your children may one day thank you for it.
