How to develop your child’s physical literacy

The Winnipeg Free Press – Nancy Heinrichs

“Encouraging your child’s basic motor skills and co-ordination at an early age is the first step in creating a movement that will benefit your child for the rest of his or her life. Research shows that being physically active as an adult is usually dependent on the individual’s ability to feel confident in an active setting. This confidence most often comes from the development of physical literacy as a child. Research also shows that without the development of physical literacy, many children and youth often lean to more inactive and/or unhealthy lifestyle choices during their leisure time instead of physical activity and sport.”(more)
