one. Limit TV, computer, and gaming time.
Children tend to be addicted to video games or watching their favorite shows. They can keep doing it for hours. Therefore, it is important to limit the time they spend doing these things. Furthermore, it is a proven fact that children who tend to sit in front of screens all day tend to become more obese faster than an active child.

two. Spend quality time.
Spending quality time with your children can mean a lot to them and will make them more willing to try something new if parents encourage them. Try to promote long, hilly walks and intense bike rides. Do some outdoor activities that you wouldn’t do on a normal day.

3. Get them involved.
Although many children do not like to do chores, it is a good way to keep them distracted and help parents around the house. Also, doing housework will give them a sense of responsibility and keep them out of trouble and things they shouldn’t be doing.

Four. Mandatory game time.
Kids playing a sport they enjoy is a great way to meet new people and get plenty of exercise. It was teaching the kids a valuable lesson on how to be a team player and cooperate with other kids in a polite way.

5. Take a walk instead of taking a car.
If you have to grab something from a nearby store, don’t always take the car. Grab your kids and take them with you for a walk to the store. That’s a great way to encourage some movement in your kids if they don’t do much. Alternatively, bribe them, if they want ice cream, they have to walk there and get it.

6. There is no homework right after school.
Do not encourage your children to do their homework immediately after school. Let them go do some fun outdoor activities with their friends. It is important for children to be active after school and before dinner.

7. Let them express.
Don’t try to decide what your child wears or doesn’t wear. Of course, set ground rules, but decide their entire wardrobe for them. Let the child choose what he wants, that way you can express his sense of style. Do not go always choosing things to do, signing up for events without consulting him. Their opinion on things is the most important, since they will be the ones who support them.

8. Feed them healthy foods.
Eating healthy is very important, it can prevent many future illnesses and injuries. Do not let your children eat chips, candy, ice cream, etc. all day. Limit them to a limited serving at a certain time from time to time, every day is not good. Also, try mixing it up! Blend a variety of fruits in the blender and add a scoop of ice cream, or give them celery with melted chocolate, apples with peanut butter. There are so many options; you just have to take the time to find them.

9. Listen to them.
When your child gets home from school, listen to what he has to say. Do not cut them because of your own business. Allow them the opportunity to say what they need to say, who knows, you might discover something new. If you don’t listen to what your children have to say, it could put distance between you and your child, it can have quite an emotional effect.

10 Allow your children to have some space and independence.
Allow your child some independence, that doesn’t mean it’s okay for them to leave uninformed or come home late, it just means they’re not in their full space. If your son wants to go hang out with her friends at the park, he doesn’t always come along, or if they’re playing video games in the living room, he doesn’t sit there and watch your every move. It’s okay if your child wants to do things on his or her own, is growing up, and should expect changes.
