Marianne: 'Exercise is a fundamental condition for a healthy general development of the child. Physical activity helps the child to develop a number of things, such as motor skills:coordination, speed, endurance and flexibility. And cognitive skills such as seeing, understanding, judging and deciding. In the tactical field, children learn to work out strategies. The social aspect is discussed:learning to interact with others. As well as the psychological and mental aspect:developing the will and perseverance. The child also learns to bring the necessary concentration and to get a handle on stress and anxiety. Last but not least, exercise can increase self-confidence, self-control and independence.
