Active for Life – Richard Monette:

10 ways raising a physically literate child is like raising a reader

1. Make reading/physical literacy a family value

2. Let them read what they enjoy/do the physical activities they enjoy

3. Be sure they are reading/playing at an appropriate level

4. Don’t use reading/physical activity as a punishment.

5. Give books/equipment as a gift

6. Let your kids see you read/be active for fun

7. Don’t over-correct, don’t over-practice

8. Point out words/physical activity everywhere

9. Set aside time for kids to read/be active on their own

10. Fun, fun, and more fun
