All children develop at their own pace, both physically and emotionally. But you can help give your children all they need to be their healthy best –including lots of playtime and plenty of affection.

 

Celebrate childhood

It’s never too late to get started on a path to wellness. Introduce your kids to healthy habits early on, when their more likely to stick.

 

Take a tech break

Studies show that too much tech time for children is linked to struggles at school, attention problems, sleeping disorders and obesity – so keep it in check.

 

Build them up

Help boost your child’s self-esteem by focusing on his or her individual strengths. Just remember to stay flexible about your idea of success –not every child excels in the same way.

 

Explore

Encourage exercise by doing it as a family. Take walks, ride bikes, or head to the beach, a lake, or a local swimming pool for a swim.
