Web site: Bowling Proprietors Association of America

Any family that has been homeschooling more than a year or two, realizes the value of companies that offer their services to us during the daytime “down” hours when institutional school children are in school. These companies include gymnastics classes, karate, pottery and art studios, and of course, bowling centers. Companies that welcome homeschool groups in mid-day make it possible for our children to learn these skills or experience excellent socializing and just plain fun with other homeschoolers in a friendly environment. Because many of us do not want our children exposed to pop “culture” via T.V. and pop music, those business establishments that are sensitive to our tastes are even more valuable.

Review by Linda K. Foster

Childhood obesity in the United States has grown considerably in recent years producing some disturbing facts:

1 in 5 children are overweight.
The prevalence of obesity has increased by 54% since the 1960s among children ages 6 to 11 and 39% among children ages 12 to 17.
Excess weight in childhood and adolescence has been found to predict overweight in adults. Obese children are reported to have a 70% likelihood of obesity in their adult years.

Obesity is among the easiest medical conditions to recognize, but the most difficult to treat. Although “new and improved” weight loss/fitness programs appear on the market as a nearly daily occurrence, few of them recognize the need to deal with the problem during the formative years, ages 3 and up.
