When I was about 7 years old, during summer I was outside almost every day along with all the other kids in my neighborhood. But these days, I don’t see as many as I used to. Now they’re all inside on the computer, watching TV or playing video games and this can lead to serious health problems, not only now, but in the future.
Kids these days aren’t getting the proper amount of exercise. Statistics show that kids aren’t outside as much as they should be and exercise rates are dropping. Because kids have these bad habits, it affects them as they become teenagers and even adults. If someone rarely exercised as a kid, it’s going to be a lot harder for them to change habits as they become adults, rather than if someone routinely exercised as a kid, it would be easy to keep those habits as they became adults.
So what’s the blame for these bad habits? Is it parents, technology, both or something else?
