Help the girls in your life benefit from physical activity

The Women’s Health Foundation has some excellent suggestions on its Ready..Set..Get a Girl Active website.

There are so many benefits for girls who are physically active and involved with sports. They are confident, learn to work together as a team, and are leaders in their communities. Research shows us that girls who are physically active are less likely to engage in risky behaviors, including smoking, alcohol and drug use and risky sexual activity. A girl who exercises every day is also less likely to get cancer and less likely to develop heart disease as an adult.

The US Department of Health & Human Services has a website devoted to bullying information.
