20. Physical Fitness

While our target is to reduce screen time, let’s not forget that we have to keep our kids active as well. So every morning fix some time for their early morning gym session where they will be exercising and stretching just so that their muscles strengthen up. After that if you have a backyard, your kids can go out and run for a while or play football together. In the noon they can go for a cycling session or for skateboarding around neighborhood. Our basic aim is to keep them active throughout the day so that they stay fit.

I’m the mother of two wonderful children. My oldest son John is 7 years old, and my daughter Jemma is a little seven-month-old girl. My kids are the main reason why I decided to start this website. Having been a mother for the last 7 years, I’d like to share some useful tips with anyone who might be interested.
