To mothers of daughters
I was watching my oldest play Stroller Strides the other day and thinking how wonderful it is that he is getting to see how important and fun exercise is at such a young age. Upon further thought, I realized how wonderful and vital it is for mothers of daughters to participate in a program like Stroller Strides. The statistical odds of my boys growing up to have body image problems are quite low when compared to the issues girls face. These little girls who attend Stroller Strides now are learning that fitness is fun, that it is about being healthy and having a good time, not about looking like the air-brushed model on the cover of Vogue. So, to all moms who do Stroller Strides, you are wonderful examples to your children - but specifically mothers of girls, well done for giving them the base to build a healthy lifestyle and body image on as they grow!
