As a parent, one of my most important jobs is to help my children grow up healthy and strong. I also want us to enjoy our time together. Active play helps us meet both those goals (and keeps me healthier too). As a journalist, I'm trained to find critical information and resources and share them in an accessible way. On this site, I use both my personal and professional experience to share the latest news and advice about family fitness.
