Make Your Kids’ Lives Healthier
All parents want their children to live healthy, happy lives. But you can’t control them every moment, especially when they’re at school or staying over at a friend’s house. And when they become teens, you really can’t control them! But what you can do is give them the knowledge and tools necessary to stay healthy. Here are some things all parents can do to teach their kids about health.
• Get up and get moving! Don’t just tell kids that gym class is important or that they need to exercise. They need to see you doing it, too. Have the family go on walks together or get a dance video game to enjoy as a family. Exercising together is often more fun than doing it alone, anyway.
• Teach them about drinking water. It’s important that everyone drink a good amount of water each day. The eight cups a day rule isn’t exactly right for everyone (it depends on weight), but it is a good target. Do something like only water for dinner or that the family can only have water after a certain time at night. Again, the parents need to follow this rule, too.
• Instill a feeling of ease and understanding between your children and their various health care professionals. Kids shouldn’t be afraid to visit the doctor, dentist, or any other professional. Talk to them about what these people do, and have the professional do the same. Make sure your children understand everything that’s being done and that while, yes, some things may hurt, it’s only temporary.
