Transform Video Games and the TV from Foes to Friends

It probably isn't news to you when you that limiting video game and TV time can help your child be more active. After all, video games and television programs are naturally sedentary activities. But what if you could turn your child's daily allowance of video games and television from a foe to a friend?

Dawes showed us how to do just that. First, aim for programming that has a positive message. Second, figure out ways to make these typically sedentary activities active. For example, select video games that have built-in physical activity. Or, choose television shows that incorporate physical fitness through dancing or exercises.
