Lori: My son absolutely hates P.E. which basically means he doesn’t exercise outside of school either. What should I do?
Megan: Listen to your son when he says he doesn’t like P.E. and find a way to relate such as saying I hated math but I still had to do it because it’s part of school and I had to do it after school to practice and get better. Ask exactly why he hates P.E. because maybe it’s just getting changed into the clothes which really isn’t exercise related. Take some extra time to possibly go to the park or walk with him after school to model the behavior. First and foremost find out the real reason and go from there.
