As we’re making the switch to Standards Based Reporting, I think this would be a great read for parents.
What really stuck out to me was the following…
“One British study even found that half of girls are put off of physical activity by their experiences in gym class and school sports.”
That was certainly the case with me growing up, and it took a long time to undo the negative feelings I had associated with physical activity. If our goal is to instill healthy habits for life… shouldn’t we get started on it right away?
