Parent Support
Do the children of active parents tend to be more active? Yes! However, there are other parental factors that influence physical activity behaviors in children.

  • Parental Encouragement (reduce TV use, positive reinforcement, etc..)
  • Parental Involvement (family walks, practicing skills, coaching, etc...)
  • Parental Facilitation (sign-ups, equipment, transportation, etc...)
  • Parental Role Modeling (walking to the store, doing yard work, etc...)
