Mondays with ME: Obesity (7/16/12)
We all have heard the alarming statistics about rising rates of obesity and related illnesses among both children and adults.
This week’s Mom Enough guests think hot, sweaty mamas can help reverse those trends!
With too many kids spending too many hours in front of one kind of screen or another, health experts around the world have issued urgent calls to get kids up and moving. But “do as I say, not as I do” just doesn’t cut it; children learn best by example, so parents need to lead the way. Kara Douglass Thom and Laurie Lethert Kocanda, have written Hot, Sweaty Mamas to inform and inspire moms of any fitness level to start moving for their own and their children’s health and well-being.
