Why We Think It’s Time for School-Specific Paddle Boards
As kids get older, it becomes more difficult to maintain a steady pace of physical activity, even with our school-based physical education programs.
According to a new study from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), this can lead to chronic pain and injury in some children, which can affect their ability to complete a range of tasks.
To help children who are experiencing chronic pain, a study from Boston Children’s Hospital found that parents of children with chronic pain should make sure they are following a program that addresses physical activity.
As the authors of the new study write, the goal of physical education for kids is to keep kids active, which means they need to be able to move, jump, and swing.
“If you can do it, then your child is able to do it,” said Dr. David A. Cottrell, an assistant professor of pediatrics at the Boston Childrens Hospital.
The study found that a school-wide physical education program, including activities that include running, jumping, and lifting weights, can help children maintain a high level of physical fitness and reduce their risk of injury.
One thing you can try to do is make sure your kids have a physical therapist on hand, so that they can talk to a trainer and get help with physical activity goals, including how to exercise and how to get the most from exercise.
Another way to ensure that kids can maintain a level of activity is to use equipment and equipment that is designed for physical activity like gym shoes, treadmills, and weights.
“If you don’t have a lot of equipment, it’s very hard to get your kids to get out there and get on the treadmill,” said Cottrel.
If you are having difficulty keeping your kids active with your physical education curriculum, then a program like the National School Physical Fitness Program, or NSPF, is a great option for you.
The program offers free or low-cost equipment and a physical education teacher.
Additionally, parents can also opt for the Healthy Weight Program, which includes activities that involve exercise and physical education.
Healthy Weight Programs also offer free equipment and instructors, which is an important part of maintaining your kids healthy.
