What's your Question: Your statements indicate that you feel you have good memory, are a good listener, and oriented to the calendar very well. I do detect, however, a number of typographical errors.

Exercises: Yes, but you don't need to focus on any specific exercise. Just get them to be active, play a sport, ride a bike, etc. The other huge component is nutrition.

What is the best way to get your child to get exercise?

Set an example early: Before they enter school, children try to imitate their parents. So get a jump on this-literally-and show them how much fun fitness activites can be. When they enter school, they have more options for activities with other kids. So enroll them in team and individual sports and help them practice. When those tough teen years arrive, peer pressure can lead kids in multiple directions. Reward health! ...Read more

Why are kids not doing enough exercise during the summers?

The video games and apps can wait. ...Read more
