Kids should go out and play, then play some games after homework is finished. Most kids already spend all day inside which makes them isolate from the real world

true. Though I think the outside world is a lot more dangerous then it was when I was that age. Stories of people getting mugged or stabbed evens cares me let alone little kids.

I think schools should have more P.E. classes and force kids to sweat.

I played football (soccer) before school, at every break after school. A lot of kids did that to be hoenst, even the fat kids.

It seems like that is getting less and less. I don't even see kids kick a football anymore.

1 hour of exercise a day. Kids have plenty of time, especially the stupid times they wake up.

We shouldn't be relying on video games to give kids exercise, anyway...

its still better then kids sitting all day but i think Idea for all games while gameing to do 2 to 3 sets of 15 to 25 reps of push ups after a every 30 min of gameing its a good way to get more activity in your day and build some muscle ass well you can also do this with body squats and planks throughout the day. i wouldn't recommend to it llike this with waight training i mean you csn but not every 30 unlesss ur doing it onece in the day for a 1 hour gameing break. if ur gona have long gameing sessions this will keep u in shape or get u to get in better shape.
