Nowadays, kids tend to be addicted to playing video games, watching their favorite shows or surfing the net for hours. Because of this, they fail to be active and productive. A lot of time is wasted; and, their lives are wasted.
Spend quality time with them. Spending quality time with your children can mean a lot to them and will make them more willing to try something new if parents are encouraging them. Try to promote long, hilly hikes and intense bike rides. Do some outdoorsy activities that they would not do on an average day.
Engage them. Although many children dislike doing chores it is a good way to keep them distracted and help parents around the house. Also, doing chores will give them a sense of responsibility and keep them away from trouble and things they shouldn't be doing.
Have a compulsory play time. Kids joining a sport they enjoy is a great way to meet new people and get a good deal of exercise. It was teach kids a valuable lesson on how to be a team player and cooperate with other kids in a mannerly fashion.
Walk with them. If you have to grab something from a store nearby don't always take the car. Grab your kids and take them with you for a walk to the store. That is a great way to promote some movement in your kids if they don't do much. Alternatively, bribe them, if they want ice cream, they have to walk there and get it.
Feed them with healthy snacks. Eating healthy is very important, it can prevent many future diseases and injuries. Don't allow you kids to eat chips, candy, ice cream, etc. all day. Limit them to a limited serving at a certain time once in a while, every day is not good. Also, try mixing it up! Mix up variety of fruits in the mixer and add a scoop of ice cream in it, Or give them celery with melted chocolate, apples with peanut butter. There are so many options; you just have to take the time to find them.
