Hi Len.... You're right - sedentary children is a growing epidemic. One of the things that I've personally observed is the number of children in our city living in apartments with absolutely no outdoor area to engage in even normal play activities. The television (or video games) have become a replacement for movement. There seems to be no easy solution. As for me, my grandchildren are apartment children. When they come here, they are limited to no more than 1-hour of TV or video per day. The rest of the time, they're gardening, riding bikes, swimming, playing ball, talking walks with me, or perhaps just discovering the joy of finding your first pet toad!
