Motivating Your Children to Move More Without Shame or Pain
Heather Horrell, M.Ed, RYT-200, and Ace-Certified Personal Trainer talks about how to encourage your children to move more during their day without using shame tactics, fights, or feel-bad techniques. It all starts with understanding what works for your family and your kids and being mindfully aware of why movement is important to our physical and emotional health as individuals. Some key points we’ll discuss include making time in the day for joyful movement, addressing mobility and extenuating health or environmental concerns, and building growth mindsets that give kids a positive outlook on themselves, their capabilities, and how they experience movement and exercise. Learn how to integrate movement into your homeschool day more organically, how to explain exercise in simple, compassionate, and inclusive terms, and what exercises to avoid for optimal safety. Let’s have fun moving together!
