Reasons to Take Your Kids Bowling

If your kids are like many today, they would rather play virtual games than anything that requires them to invest their time and energy into real movement. The good news is that, once you get them motivated, they will be ready to have an in home bowling alley installed! Although the main idea is to get them out of the house and moving, home bowling alleys are a great option for those who enjoy bowling but who live a long way from the nearest bowling alley, or who have trouble fitting regular outings into their busy schedule. Even if you have to travel a ways to get your kids started, there are some important reasons to make the effort.

Battling Childhood Obesity

About 1 in 3 children in the United States is either overweight or obese, and childhood obesity is the top concern for parents. Being overweight increases the risk of high blood pressure, high cholesterol that leads to cardiovascular problems, and type 2 diabetes. In addition, being overweight causes kids to experience low self-esteem, gives them a negative body image, and can lead to depression.

While some people think of bowling as a leisure activity, it is a sport that can be enjoyed by people of all ages. Bowling burns about 50 calories per game, increases flexibility, and improves coordination. Unlike other sports, it doesn’t require you to be a talented athlete to participate and perform well. Bowling regularly can improve a child’s physical and psychological well-being and give them a sense of confidence that they are doing something they are good at.

Bond while You Bowl

Bowling is a social sport, offering family members a good chance to talk, laugh, and have a good time. You can include every member of the family, including grandparents. It doesn’t single anybody out as being less of an athlete, but encourages children to learn to work as a team while they are getting numerous health benefits they don’t even realize.
