Most kids love to be on the go. They’re just naturally physically active.

“Kids at play” defines normal childhood. One of the symptoms that our children don’t feel good is when they slow down or don’t want to play. As they grow older, the challenge is to get them to be active enough for their own well-being.

“Kids at play” defines normal childhood. One of the symptoms that our children don’t feel good is when they slow down or don’t want to play. As they grow older, the challenge is to get them to be active enough for their own well-being.

Many things seem to conspire against your youngsters being active as they age. Hours in a desk chair at school during the day and busy, working families during evening hours hinder activity. And if your son or daughter feels less than good at sports, that’s a difficulty, too.

Instilling a love of activity in your little ones is very similar to instilling a love for anything else – you present it often, and make it fun. You can encourage the establishment of fun and healthy patterns for your children that they will carry throughout their adult lives.

Children benefit greatly from the results of regular physical activity and play. Some of the benefits include:

Stronger bones and musclesBetter sleepA positive outlook on lifeAcademic motivationImproved self-confidenceWeight controlDecreased risk of developing a variety of diseasesSkills of teamwork

Find activities that fit your daughter or son. Encourage participation in sports, the arts and hobbies that provide physical or mental activity. Choose age-appropriate activities, so your child is neither over-challenged nor bored. Make certain the correct gear or equipment is available when the kids play – ice skates, roller skates, pads, helmets, etc. Remember that top performance is not the goal. Having fun is.

Keep the focus on fun by making opportunities for playing together as a family. Put up a hoop in the driveway. Ride bikes as a family. Jump rope together. Take advantage of the play equipment at the park. Do calisthenics together – good for Dad and Mom, too. Dance to music. Walk the dog. Remember to keep the kids hydrated while they play.

“Kids at play” is the goal. And playing safe is equally as important. If an accident should occur, bring your family to your local Physicians Urgent Care. Our patients are seen by an ER doctor without the ER wait or expense. We provide quality, compassionate medical care for a wide range of injuries and illnesses. No appointment is necessary, and we’re here for you seven days a week in both Franklin and Brentwood, Tennessee. Play safe, but when you need medical attention, come to Physicians Urgent Care.
