Are kids are too scheduled?

This post is one that is near and dear to my heart-and something I am always (trying!) to be mindful of! I want my kids to be active and try lots of different sports/activities, but sometimes when I stop and look at our schedule, I realize that we are on the go with activities (in addition to school and work!) for days and days in a row with no break. Kids need time to be kids (and parents to catch their breath!), in addition to the structured activities they choose-time to run and jump and climb and play! Checkout the article below from the Canadian Professional Trainer’s Network (www.cptn.com) for some signs that it might be time to pull back a little. And don’t forget how quickly they grow…..be sure to treasure them today!!
