VIDEO GAMES  are a good option for children recovering from a bleed, or as a way to transport themselves INTO the game and BE in their imagination the best soccer player, or the dangerous warrior!! IMAGINATION has no limits and can provide a source of JOY AND FUN!  Studies have shown also that even war video games like Call of Duty can improve reflexes and provide quicker decision making. Of course, balance is always a good thing: too much or TOO LITTLE is not good 🙂  just mix activities for your son; indoors and outdoors…..

video games : a good option and kids just love them!...and are good at them :)

OS VIDEO GAMES SÃO UMA ÓTIMA ALTERNATIVA QUANDO SEU FILHO ESTA SE RECUPERANDO DE UM SANGRAMENTO E TEM DE FICAR QUETINHO EM CASA. ALEM DE EXERCITAR SEUS REFLEXOS E PODER VIVER NA IMAGINAÇÃO O QUE ELE QUISER: SER UM SUPER  JOGADOR DE FUTEBOL OU UM GRANDE GUERREIRO ! OS MENINOS GOSTAM DE PODER  EXPRESSAR SUAS ENERGIAS EM COMBATES  E DESAFIOS! (muitas  meninas também ! 🙂 )  claro que o equilíbrio é necessário : não é para ficar horas a fio jogando sem sair de casa brincar também ao ar livre …. busque sempre achar a melhor atividade física para seu filho, o importante é se divertir e aprender sobre si mesmo.
