Module 3: Working with Parents to Promote Children's Physical Activity
|The Let’s Move: America’s Move to Raise Healthier Generations of Kids—Active Families website gives suggestions for activities to help families to have a healthier, active lifestyle. Being physically active as a family can be a fun way to get everyone moving. Children who believe they are competent and have the skills to be physically active are more likely to be active. And those who feel supported by families and friends to become active or who are surrounded by others who enjoy physical activity are more likely to participate.|
See Resources for a list of materials for child care providers and for parents.
