Prioritizing Girls’ Health: Girls on the Run
Work, bills, chores, children. #Adulting can be tough some days. Ok…most days.
As grown-ups, we usually long to go back to our carefree childhood. Days when we had no responsibilities and seemed to have no struggles.
But the truth is, being a kid can be tough, too. If you think back, you may remember. Especially those pre-teen and teenage years. Young bodies go through so much during that time. And kids don’t always understand what’s happening. They may not know as much about nutrition and physical exercise. They aren’t sure how to develop a good relationship with their own bodies.
Girls and young women especially struggle with body image issues. These issues only get more pronounced as they grow.
Help your child see how beautiful they are. Help her remain confident throughout her formative years. As a parent or caregiver, you have an opportunity to make the biggest impact on your child. You can affect their mental and emotional wellbeing during challenging developmental years.
Organizations like Girls on the Run® strive to build confidence and character. They do this while incorporating running and physical activities for health.
