Walk with your kids!!!!!!!
Found a great site where the writer says “ ‘How can I create a situation where my child can develop walking endurance? https://www.nutritiousmovement.com/walking-with-kids/
If you’re all excited about heading out for a 30-minute walking session because YOU need the movement, that’s all great, but you’re basically setting the kid (and yourself) up for failure. Don’t use your walking time for the child’s necessary training session. The kid needs his own walk, that allows him to successfully complete the entire walk on his own two legs. Say “Hey Sam! It’s time for your walk! Let’s go!”
- Do this 2-3 times a day.
- Walk only about 7-10 minutes, tops. Slightly more if it’s easy, slightly less if they are unable.
- Increase the length of your walk, by 2-3 minutes (or about 10%) every week.’ “
SKILLS: muscle practice & exercise and conversation and recall
