The Well Balanced Child

Movement and Early Learning

Sally Goddard Blythe


Children of today are more sedentary than any previous generation. Traditional outdoor games—running and jumping, hopscotch, tree climbing, playing on playground equipment—are being abandoned in favor of television, computers, and electronic games. As a result, there is unprecedented concern over the rising levels of childhood obesity and even heart disease.

Deprived of the crucial opportunities for exercising the body and the senses that prepare the brain for learning in the early years, many children are literally unfit to begin the learning process.

The Well Balanced Child is a passionate manifesto for a whole-body approach to learning, which integrates the brain, senses, movement, and play. This practical, inspiring book will enable parents and educators to help children attain their full potential:
  • Why movement matters
  • How music helps brain development
  • The role of nutrition, the brain and child growth
  • Practical tips for parent and educators to help children with learning and behavioural problems
