Description

303 TWEEN-APPROVED EXERCISES AND ACTIVE GAMES is written specifically for kids ages 9-12 years old. Kimberley Wechsler, a specialist in Kid's Fitness, took into account the fundamental attributes of being a child while developing these exercises. Children have specific physiologic differences that make them unique. They grow, mature and develop skills at different ages, so what may be skill appropriate for one child could be harmful for another child. These exercises reflect the emotional, social, physical level of this age group. Children of this age group are now at the skill level in which physical challenges like mind, body, meditation, balance, muscle strengthening and sport performance building exercises become very important. Sports skills and drills can now be developed and competition is highlighted and welcomed within this age group. Kids at this age like to show off their talents so it is important for teachers and parents to observe and provide positive feedback on all of their accomplishments. At this age, tweens want to belong to a sport, group or identify with a sport celebrity to begin to define who they are and what their likes are; friends, also, tend to become more of an influence than parents at this age. Bad behaviour patterns and peer pressure have now developed - -making it more difficult to change current patterns - -but it can be done. 303 TWEEN-APPROVED EXERCISES AND ACTIVE GAMES can help tweens build confidence in high-pressure situations and build their social skills through playing team sports.
