Getting kids outside everyday

Are you the type of mom that tries to get your kids to play outside everyday? I try to get my dd (14 months) to run around outside everyday for at least a couple of hours. I feel guilty if we stay inside too long lol ... Anyone else like me?

  • I get mine out by going with them. I water the flowers, check the mail, watch the kids play...
    I definately want to be out during the summer months. In the winter, i don't care to be out at all!

  • yes the only time i want my kids inside in the warmer months is if its raining or time to eat or nap the rest they should be outside playing and exploring the world.

  • I try to have the kids go out and play but lately with the extreme heat index's and all the rain we have had it hasn't happened other than the day we made it to the pool. I also took them to the play area at the mall a couple of times to burn some energy. When our church isn't using the gym for anything and it is raining during the week we go up there and run around too. It isn't fresh air but at least they are burning some energy.

  • My daughter is outside a lot now the only time I don't want her outside is if the temp is too hot.
