Has your kid been sitting on a computer all day doing virtual schooling? Lack of movement can be very detrimental to a kid’s growth and could develop poor biomechanics in the future. Here are a few things to help neutralize the effects of sitting in front of a computer all day:
Kids need to be climbing on things. Climbing is a super important way to develop sturdy and strong shoulders that can prevent future injuries. Trees and ropes are a great idea of things that kids can climb on.
Being outside important to be getting Vitamin D which can help build up the immune system
Running around will help kids “let out their wiggles” so they can be focused on school and other things when they need to.
The social interaction that kids get are invaluable. Whether it is through a team sport or playing with other kids it builds good life long skills that are important for the development of kids.
