Bulletin 07: Parental Involvement in Children’s Physical Activity


The 2010 Physical Activity Monitor explored the concept of parental involvement by asking parents about the amount of time that they spend playing active games with their child and transporting their children to their physical activities or sports. Parents were also asked if over the past 12 months, they have supervised recess or helped at a physical activity or sporting event at their child’s school, volunteered to help with their child’s physical activities or sports (such as a special event or serving on a committee), or if they have bought equipment, paid a membership or fee, or paid for coaching or instruction for their child’s physical activity or sports.
