Episode 16 Show Notes:

Why Children Need to Move Their Body – Get Up & Dance!

 Welcome to Episode 16 of Crayons and Tantrums. I have a message to all of the children learning from home and missing their playgrounds and playdates. Get up and dance dance dance dance dance.!!!! Yes, that’s right. Get up and move your bodies. Jump to the left, jump to the right, twirl around and then sit down.

Today’s episode is called, “Why Children Need to Move Their Body – Get Up and Dance!” Movement plays an important role in your child’s growth and development.

I think in today’s current climate encouraging movement in children’s daily activities is extremely important. It’s easy to become stagnant and just sit. With high levels of stress, anxiety and our feelings being on an emotional roller coaster it’s easy to feel down. It happens to adults and it can happen to children if we allow it.

Don’t forget to check in every Wednesday for a new episode. Come hang out with me on Instagram or Pinterest (@monicajsutton), so we can hold each other accountable on understanding your child’s behavior and development and how to best approach the daily ups and downs.  Chat soon!
