Many parents ask me how they can help their child build a healthy lifestyle. My answer is – make it FUN! Recent research shows that one out of five children in this country is obese. Research also shows that the more active a child is at an early age, the more likely they will maintain a higher activity level throughout their lifetime. Children also learn social skills in relating to other children during “active” playtime. All of this research ties into the basis of our Morning FitKids Program for preschoolers at Cornerstone – having fun while making their heart say “Thank You!”
Over the years that I’ve developed fun and interactive children’s programs, I have experienced children as young as two understanding how they can make their heart say “Thank You!” After taking part in one of our programs, my biggest reward is to hear a child say, with their hand on their chest, “Miss Joy, my heart is saying Thank You!” After a lifetime of working with children, I have found children succeed when they are empowered to do the best they can in a fun, positive environment.
