If you want your kids to be more physically active, STOP being a helicopter parent. A study at North Carolina State University found that parents who watch their children like hawks are actually hurting their child’s overall health and welfare. Because when moms and dads always jump in to help, or keep a child safe, it interrupts the so-called “flow of play.” So, instead of kids running around with their friends, they’re more likely to sit quietly in front of the computer or TVWhich raises their risk for obesity.
