From biomechanist and bestselling author Katy Bowman comes her eagerly anticipated guide to getting kids―from babies to preteens―and their families moving more, together, outside.
Our kids are moving less than any other generation in human history; indoor time and screen time have skyrocketed. As adults and kids turn more to "convenient," tech-based solutions, tasks that once required head-to-toe use of our muscles and bones can be done with a click and a swipe. Without realizing it, we’ve traded convenience for the movement-rich environment that our physical, mental, and environmental health depends on.
Parents don’t know what to do!
But there’s good news: While the problem feels massive, the solution is simple…and fun!
Grow Wild not only breaks down the ‘big ideas’ behind movement as a nutrient, it serves as field guide―how to spot all the movement opportunities we’re currently missing.
Learn to “stack your life” for richer experiences that don’t take more time:
- Set up your home to promote more movement, naturally
- Dress for (movement) success
- Add snacktivities to your meals
- Plan dynamic celebrations
- Create a dynamic homework space
- Bring nature into your home and play
And much more!
