DON'T FRY IN THE SUN
The risk of your child getting a sunburn or developing skin cancer can be greatly reduced by using sunblock. Also, if your child is out playing or doing sports add a hat. This will shade their face, ears,and scalp which we tend to forget can become painfully sunburned. Remember being out in the sun is fun and can be healthy but getting baked in the sun can have life long consequences.
Enjoy the outdoors and the sun but keep the sunscreen handy. Read the instructions of the tube to maximize your child's protection.
WALKING WITH YOUR CHILD
Walking is an exercise that almost anyone can do. Getting your children out for a walk everyday has many benefits:
Promotes strong bones and muscles
Can help with weight control
Walking with your child has other benefits:
Good time to discuss his day at school. He can tell you how he is doing, about his friends, or something funny that happened that day.
Teach pedestrian safety. Show your child the safe way to cross the street.
Encourage healthy habits for life.
Need a good place to walk. Come to Blue Ridge/Green Meadows and walk around the drive. One lap around the drive is exactly 1/2 mile. If you need a place to rest, let your child play on the playground while you sit on the bench.
BE A GOOD ROLL MODEL AND EXERCISE WITH YOUR CHILD.
