Tips for encouraging active children

You can help your child be active by being a good role model and sending positive messages about being physically active.

Ways to do this include:

  • being active yourself – your child will be more likely to follow your lead
  • giving your child praise and encouragement if an activity is proving a bit hard for him
  • trying to make some time to have fun playing actively with your child – it’s great to find something you both enjoy doing
  • supporting but not coaching your child when he’s learning something new – just try saying ’I enjoy watching you play’
