  • Your children learn by watching you. If you are physically active, your children will be active, too. 
  • Make physical activity part of your family's daily routine by taking family walks or playing active games together.
  • Give your children equipment that encourages physical activity.
  • Take young people to places where they can be active, like parks, baseball fields or basketball courts.
  • Be positive about the physical activities in which your child takes part in and encourage them to be interested in new activities.
  • Instead of watching TV after dinner, encourage your child to find fun activities to do on their own or with friends and family, like walking, playing chase or riding bikes.
