Book Description:
The purpose of this book is to provide information for adults - especially parents and teachers - about how they might better understand total fitness and to encourage them to cultivate it in our most important resource, our children. In this regard, it is interesting to note that studies show that parents’ physical activity tends to be significantly related to their child’s body composition, and that the more active the parents are, the more active their child will be. Further studies show that the average American preschooler watches 30 hours of television a week and that the average American will have watched nine years of television by the time he or she is 65 years old. The relationship that has formed between child television watching and physical fitness, is that reports show that the greater the time spent in front of the television, the higher proportion of body fat in that child.
Aside from just providing the statistics and knowledge of the existence of this growing fitness problem, this significant book attempts to inform the parents and teachers, and anyone who truly is concerned about children’s health, what efforts must be made to improve the overall fitness of our children.
