What I’m going to say may seem completely absurd or even contradictory but it is completely true: although today’s kids seem incredibly intelligent and wiser in the ways of the world, their bodies are becoming so incredibly deconditioned and unhealthy than ever before!!
Is it because of all the conveniences all of the advances of our modern world That Has created this completely absurd paradox?? Is it a world that is completely paralyzed by everything that is digital..by everything that is social media? If so, then our children must be developing a completely unreal view of the world! Are these the things that have completely disconnected our children and their parents from the importance Play? I don’t mean playing video games and watching TV… I mean the old-fashioned kind of play involving the actual physical movement of the body.
How are the children of today and tomorrow supposed to grow into conscious healthy participants in our society.. when their entire world consists of gaMing and Snap chatting? When parents are excepting of this because it’s an easy way to get out of real and active parenting of their children!
Look around you!! More often than not you will see overweight and obese teenagers tipping the scales at alarming rates it’s only getting worse!!
According to the 2016 health Canada reporting on childhood obesity trends in Canada Although obesity rates over the past decade tend to be remaining stable or declining a little excess weight still remains prevalent. Ongoing monitoring of childhood obesity will provide useful information to assist with sustained actions to promote healthy weights.
Health Canada also indicates That the trends for obesity or higher among lower income families and more prevalent in certain areas of Canada.
It’s time that we as parents get more involved in getting our kids out of the house.. and I don’t mean just telling them to go outside and play because it’s us who has put them in a position where in activity has become their way of life! It’s about us as parents setting that example becoming involved and helping our children for one new and healthy lifestyles they will carry forward and teach their own children and their children’s children!
