“These days,children are quite inactive since they are not fond of sports that much. The activities they would rather engage in are playing on their PCs, consoles or simply watching cable TV programs. For such reason, children become obese, sickly and not that too friendly. They get to miss the good old fun of running outdoors and yelling at the top of their lungs. As compared to their parents, they are less inactive since the parts of their body that just move are their hands for clicking the mouse or pressing keyboard. Certainly, this is a challenge for contemporary parents who search for methods to make their children get out of the house and have fun. In the past, Hopscotch and Blind Man’s Buff endelessly delighted children. Way back into the 80s, children are impatient to go out of their house to play with their next door neighbor Today, all they want is to stay in the room on front of the PCs.
