One major concern of parents nowadays is having obese kids. I blame a big part of it to the lack of physical activities these kids are doing every day. It is a fact that most kids are now into computer games so that all they do is sit in front of their computers all day or play games on their iPads and other gadgets that do not require them to move around.
It is important to involve our kids in activities that allow them to develop not only their mental skills but physical and social skills as well. Parents should think of ways to bond with their kids by doing fun activities that they all could do together.
While husband and I were walking around the park one day, we saw a family in their scooters and they looked like they were really having fun, especially the kids. Those light-weight, colorful and stylish kickboard scooters for kids are really cool. The benefits parents and kids get from scooters cannot be ignored.
Kids always have the energy for games and play and a scooter is a great idea for this. Let them play and have fun without them realizing that they are also doing something that is good for their health. A kick-off scooter helps kids develop their balance and flexibility, coordination and motor skills. Of course it provides a great way for families to bond with each other.
When my favorite niece had her fifth birthday last week, she was actually asking for an expensive iPad as her birthday present. I discouraged my cousin to buy her that expensive gadget. I suggested getting her something that will be useful and beneficial for her growth like a scooter for instance. I knew my niece would love it!
