Kids and Behavior Problems in School

Posted Feb 03 2009 12:50am

School teachers and school administrators are reporting they are seeing an increase in behavior problems being acted out in threatening ways.  They are beginning to believe it is because there is the absence of physical activities and free, creative time for the kids to express themselves.


It is interesting to note that other countries are looking into or have in place a ten

minute for every 40 to 50 minutes of students sitting all day at their desks.  This relates back to the article I wrote this week on Kids Needing Fresh Air:  Kids need recesses to be better students.


This is another call for parents to get involved in their kids school PTO and help to work with school administrators in providing a break during the day for your kids and incorporate fresh air for students.  It is vitally important that parents get involved in school systems to volunteer and help in making this happen.
