P.E. Teacher Betty Jackson Takes on Childhood Obesity in Georgia
But what habits are we forming… and what habits are we teaching our kids?
This news report about Betty Jackson, a Physical Education teacher taking matters into her own hands, is inspiring.
She’s doing such a good job, that First Lady Michelle Obama visited her school, to highlight their efforts at fighting childhood obesity!
Check out the article (it has audio as well – so you can listen to it).
The first-hand narration of how some of the kids spend their time after school is depressing.
Yeah – it’s easy to think about really obese kids, and wonder how they got that bad.
But I wonder about the rest of us who, while we may not be obese, certainly are living a much more sedentary lifestyle than when WE were kids.
Before the era of video games, cable TV, laptops, iPads, xBox, and so on.
What’s your take on the childhood obesity epidemic?
How has your level of activity changed, from when you were a kid, until now?
Have your say.
