In a new book, “slow parent” Susan Sachs Lipman pushes back against the highly scheduled, jam-packed lives of parents and kids
Teens who play at least three team sports are least likely to be overweight or obese, a new study finds. Makes sense, but does the required time commitment come at the expense of parental sanity?
My first reaction when I saw a recent New York Times story about really little kids taking to the playing field was: “That’s my daughter!” Not exactly, of course; same uniform, different child.
Team sports are great for kids from a variety of physical and social perspectives, but new research shows the cardio kick they get from such activities is nowhere near what it needs to be.
Team sports ain’t what they used to be. Parents jeer, coaches demand and kids — understandably — are under a lot of pressure to perform.
