“Active Video Games May Be A Good Supplement To Outdoor Play For Kids”

I haven’t posted in a very long time. Circumstances beyond my control… Anyway…

I ran across an article in Medical Daily that summarizes a study from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville. Since I believe that, the long term physical health ramifications of hours of sedentary video game playing by young children may well leave all of us sorry in years to come, I thought I would pass this on to you.

Active Video Games for Kids

“Active Video Games May Be A Good Supplement To Outdoor Play For Kids”

“For a long time now, scientists have warned parents about letting their kids play video games during their free time…”

“…a new study suggests all that movement may be just as effective as playing outdoors.”

“The study comes from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, where researchers were interested in comparing the effects of playing motion-based video games to so-called “unstructured outdoor play” — playing in a playground, for example — among children aged 5 to 8.”

“The researchers hooked up 16 normal-weight children to accelerometers on their hips and both wrists,…”

“Outdoor play took place in a fully-equipped playground…” “kids could engage in whichever activities they wanted.”

“When they went inside to play video games, they were given an Xbox 360 Kinect with the game “Kinect Adventures: River Rush.” The game requires jumping and side-stepping to maneuver an inflatable raft through river courses.”

“The researchers measured levels of physical activity with the Children’s Activity Rating Scale,” (Link to Children’s Activity Rating Scale = http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/2091164)

“According to national physical activity guidelines, children and adolescents should be getting 60 minutes or more of physical activity each day, in addition to muscle strengthening activities at least three days a week.” (National Physical Activity Guidlelines from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention= http://www.cdc.gov/physicalactivity/basics/children/index.htm)

Child Behavior Problem Solutions - Dealing with Children's Anger

If you have a child that has outward displays of anger, then you can relate to the challenges of Dealing with Children’s Anger. The very busy lives of parents can be frustrating and at times infuriating.

Though children do not have the difficulties with which adults are faced daily, they can get frustrated and angry as well. This is because they have not yet learned the skills to deal with life.

There never seems to be a way to deal shrewdly and effectively with angry children.

Dealing with Angry Children takes patience, diligence, and awareness. Children are not born with the ability to express anger in socially appropriate ways. They do not have the words to express it; they do not have the knowledge to solve it; they do not understand how to get help, or that they may need help.

There is a solution: Dealing with Children’s Anger – Kindle Book

If you have ever found yourself Dealing with Angry Children, whatever the source, it’s the right time to explore new options, and develop effective techniques for Dealing with Your Angry Children.
