In the race for the sport: pediatricians, families and patients will compete with Miniduathlon
Children and teens today do fewer sports, the hours devoted to physical activity by young people are on average less than 2 per week in the face of 3-4 hours per day that pass at the screen computer or television to which must be added the hours spent sitting at school desk.
The situation is really worrying and the first to be preoccupied are the pediatricians they see among their patients the dramatic effects of this lifestyle. Culturally Italy lacks the idea of sharing of sport within the family unit; some mothers accompanying children to practice the various activities and maybe dads follow them during games and tournaments on the weekends, but the real sport sharing occurs when the whole family practice with the same activity. As usual, I am the example and the good practice that they achieve results migLiori, especially in terms of motivation.
