The 2:1 Club - Q & A
Q. Do we need to sign up on line to participate in the 2:1 club?
A. No. For fun, go to the downloads page and print the written agreement between you and your child to reduce their technology time. Signing up with this make believe contract is more than enough to get you started in the 2:1 Club.
Q. My child just sits in front of the TV all day and refuses to do anything else. What can I do?
A. Well, this is where your parental authority must take over. Remember, health habits in children start at a very young age. If you child gets deeper into the habit of watching TV, it will be harder and harder to break as the get older. Check out Len Saunders' Commercial-CIZE web page to break your child of the TV habit.
"Thirty to sixty minutes of activity broken into smaller segments of 10 or 15 minutes throughout the day has significant health benefits.."
(The President's Council, April 2005)
Q. We don't have long periods of time to exercise. What can we do?
A. Please read the quote above in blue from The President's Council On Physical Fitness & Sports. The trick is to get some exercise whenever you have a chance.
Q. I cannot keep an eye on my child 24/7. How do I know they are not using any technology when I am not around?
A. You don't know. As mentioned a few times on this page, your children are on the honor system. You have to educate them on this program, then trust them.
