Your Active Child

Today, many children fall into one of two categories, neither of which is healthy: one group is almost entirely inactive, and the other spends most of their “free” time in highly structured, overly stressful competitive sports that are age-inappropriate.

As an expert on children’s movement and development, and as a consultant to the Children’s Television Workshop, Gymboree, YMCA of the USA, and other groups, Rae Pica shows how the right kinds of activities increase children’s enjoyment of physical activity for a lifetime.
