Develop your child's brain through sports

Lise Eliot
Mine has become a soccer family. I have spent more Saturday afternoons than I could count watching our three kids play games in pouring rain, muggy heat, biting cold, and occasionally, perfectly gorgeous weather. I’m happy to say that the more years they’ve stuck with it, the better our kids have gotten, so that by high school, the games have become downright exciting. Like many parents today, we encouraged our kids in sports with the goal of strengthening their bodies and developing their physical skills like speed and agility. Of course, we also hoped the sports would be fun, allow them to bond with their teammates and teach them how to win and lose with equal amounts of grace. Read all ►

Balancing physical play with technology

Lise Eliot
Children love to move. Have you ever heard the story about Olympian Jim Thorpe, considered the greatest athlete of his day, who succumbed to exhaustion after spending just a few hours attempting to mimic every single action of a young toddler? From early infancy onward, children are enormously more active than adults. And it’s a good thing. Their bodies are switched to the GO state for nearly all of their waking hours, which happens to be exactly what their brain and muscles need to develop all those new skills like walking, running, throwing and drawing.
