If your Fort Myers (Dunk City) children are anything like mine, they love to spend lots of time on the computer. Instead of hopping on their bike and zipping over to Estero, Fort Myers or Dunk City to talk to their friends they would rather email or Facebook them. As my kids were growing up in the Punta Gorda area, we used cans tied together with yarn to communicate from tree house to Little Tikes play house and as far as mail went we used good old snail mail.
My name is Lynette Henk and this is my blog where I advocate for Punta Gorda children’s health and talk about power squares. Today we will discuss the importance of teaching our Florida kids safe habits to govern their computer time to help prevent injury.
SW Florida & Dunk City parents and caregivers need to regulate children’s computer usage. Moderation is the key. My kids would sit in front of the computer all day if I let them, but we set the timer for 30 minutes and then it is time to choose another activity, like enjoying the Punta Gorda sunshine. By taking breaks the muscles used while computing are able to mend and repair themselves so that they are less likely to become injured.
Kids need to vary the ways they operate the computer so that different muscles get used. Instead of manipulating a mouse for every command, teach them to use a touch pad. Many Naples software stores sell voice activated systems which allow kids to switch up how they work at the computer to allow different muscles to work. Encourage your kids to take breaks to stretch and even shut their eyes for a few moments.
Florida parents should coach their children on the proper way to sit at the computer. Posture is very important and should be loose and inherent, not stiff or unnatural. The habits we teach our SW Florida kids will serve them throughout their lives.
Healthy habits for Florida kids include eating nutritious food and exercising daily. For more information about keeping your kids healthy contact me today.
