Health Crisis
The lack of meaningful physical activity by today's children has become a major health risk.  Conditions related to their sedentary lifestyles, including diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity,  depression and anxiety, are increasing and having a negative impact on overall school performance.  To counter this, schools must provide a quality physical education program.  Parents/families can counter this by limiting the time children watch TV,  play video games and spend sitting at a computer.  Some inexpensive exercise ideas for the home include:
             jump ropes
             hula hoops
             walking
             shooting baskets
             biking
             skate boarding
             roller skating
             dancing
