Want Kids Off Their Phones & Moving? Try This Simple Idea!

There’s a new commercial featuring a mom and daughter energetically dancing, and I thought, hey, that's us! Getting kids up off the couch can be tough these days with all the electronic diversions that encourage a sedentary lifestyle. One way I've found to make that fun - and take a break from TV, texting or even homework - is to put on some clean hip-hop, haul my kids up and insist they dance with me for a few minutes. Even if they start out grumbling, they always end up enjoying it and laughing! We all get some flow going, a bonding break, and I gain “cool mom” status - for a minute!
