Physical Exercise

The Connection between Exercise and Your Child's Brain Development

Physical Exercise has benefits beyond health and motor development. It is also good for your child's cognitive and social-emotional development. Exercise stimulates blood circulation and oxygen to the brain, and signals the brain to release neurotransmitters that promote well-being. A fun exercise option at this age is the riding toy. Some different types of riding toys are scooters, rocking horses, tricycles, push cars, and balance bikes. Be sure to find one that fits your child's size, and spot him during his first few attempts at these new toys.
