Living in the digital age is starting to take a toll on the health of Canadian children. In Canada’s most recent participation report card on physical activity for children and youth we received a D-. Not a grade most parents would be happy with if it was on a child’s school report card. The question is, how can we improve this grade? To start, we need to tame the technology habit and get kids playing again.
We love the recent campaign from Participaction that includes commercials with a powerful message, like the one shown here, to encourage parents to “Make Room for Play.”
Check out highlights of the report from Participaction and take a moment to tell us how you think we can improve our grade and the health of Canada’s children.
