I’ve noticed a funny thing about kids (and I don’t think my kids are unique in this) – the older Jackson and Olivia get, the more active they become. And the more active they become, the more they inevitably get hurt.
Of course, keeping my kids active is a huge priority. I want them to have plenty of exercise and be able to enjoy being kids. Bumps and bruises here and there are part of the game.
Typically, their bumps and bruises are made better with a kiss and hug from me, but every once in a while a boo boo requires a little extra love and attention.
Disney to the rescue!
This week’s Disney’s D-Lightful video challenge is here to help you banish the boo-boo blues.
Try these tips to help keep your kids smiling when a bump or bruise occurs:
- If your child gets hurt, be sure to explain how you’re helping each step of the way – knowing what is going on can bring him or her comfort.
- Ask your kids what their favorite Disney character would do favorite Disney characters when they aren’t feeling well. It might even bring out a giggle!
What are some ways you inspire your growing kids to stay physically active, especially when the TV and video games beckon?
