Sedentariness is the modern monster that threatens to devour our children. Screwed behind their screens, they move less and less and their attention slumps. The question is: how to turn the tide?
The answer to this question may lie in this short sentence: since it is useless to hope for a screen-free world, we just have to limit the hours of use and direct our children to quality content… that keeps them moving. In any case, this is the bet made by the Mini Yoga series on the MiniABC Youtube channel.
