Overview of Strategies to support physical activity for parents and caregivers of young children

As health and fitness professionals working with parents and caregivers of young children, it is helpful to understand their needs and circumstances so that we may be more creative in helping them to achieve their PA goals. Parents and caregivers may find that they now need to be more creative to fit PA into their schedules, and that it may look differently than it has in the past.
