Course Description

Evidence is building that current parenting and educational practices may be doing more harm than good, in terms of children's well-being. This module will be covered in two parts. This module discusses research that creates a picture of the current situation for the majority of Canadian children in terms of physical activity. Excerpts from recent annual report cards completed by Active Healthy Kids Canada form the framework for the discussion.
