Children love walking because:
- It’s fun and interesting – you get to notice things along the way and meet people in the town;
- It’s sociable – children love walking with their friends, especially on the journey to school;
- It makes them feel good – the exercise makes them feel calmer and happier and it improves their concentration.
- It promotes independence and freedom – children can make more decisions about their journey than they can in a car. They can choose to stop and look at something along the way and they can start to make decisions about road safety.
There are other benefits to walking, too. It helps keep you and your children healthy in mind as well as body, helping to boost your mood and self-esteem.
