Raising Physically Active Kids

This week we decided to discuss how we as moms keep our kids physically active and how to motivate them to stay physically active. We offer our own experiences as kids and how we are currently motivating and continue to motivate our kids. In this digital world, this is a challenging time for parents to keep their kids interested in activities but also moving them away from the screens and outside.
