Keeping Children Amused

We all know that it is not a good idea for children to sit for hours in front of the television. These days there are lots of electronic gadgets that can keep children amused for hours. But is it good for them?

Scientists and doctors tell us that the more we sit, the more unhealthy we are. When we sit our heart and blood flow and breathing and heart are not stimulated. 

Give children something to do
If we go for an exercise walk the blood is pumping through our veins at a faster rate. This gets our metabolism going. It makes us breathe faster. When we breathe we get more oxygen into our body. We need oxygen for our brain to work properly. 

Children need to move. They need to be active. Give them little projects. We all feel more useful when we have something to do.

Get children used to going outside. Get them to participate in sporting activities. What you are really doing is setting up their ideas to be healthy later in life. You are saying to them 'This is what you do with your life. You must be active. You must be healthy.'
