Active Video Games aren’t so Active : (

Randall Stross in The New York Times reports that active console video games don’t actually increase children’s exercise. I wasn’t surprised to read this, but I was disappointed. We all know how good exercise is for us. Studies show that even moderate amounts of exercise improve overall health. And exercise seems to improve children’s academic performances. My kids often grumble when it’s time to walk the dog or head off for a hike, but they usually love it once we’re on our way. It is challenging to get them out of the house, but it always feels worth it.
