A report in the Australian edition of The Guardian today claims that, according to a recently published study, Aussie and Kiwi children are amongst the most inactive in the world. Nearly ninety percent of them do not meet the recommended target of an hour of moderate exercise a day.
A lot of things have changed during my lifetime but the biggest change is probably in the way children spend their time. I feel so sad for the kids of today. They have no freedom to explore or take risks and their world is so small. We have memories of childhood, some good, some bad, but they will have no memories of any worth to bring to mind in their own twilight years.
