Health Tip: Kids on the Run

Health Tip: Kids on the Run

09/24/12

(HealthDay News) -- If your child has a desire to run, you should encourage this great form of exercise that requires very little equipment.

But that doesn't mean you shouldn't take precautions, the American Council on Exercise says. Here's the council's advice:

  • Check with your pediatrician before the child starts running, to make sure there are no potential health issues.
  • Remember that a child can't perform at the same level as an adult.
  • Take it easy in extreme weather. On hot days, make sure your child drinks plenty of extra fluids.
  • Teach a young runner to warm up, cool down and how to stretch the muscles. Also teach proper form.
  • Always honor your child's wishes when he or she asks to stop.
  • Make sure the goals your child sets are realistic and attainable.
