When I was growing up, it was pretty hard to keep us kids from moving around. Even in the throes of exhaustion, my friends and I took advantage of every waking moment to get outside and run until we were literally exhausted to the point of collapsing.

The allure of these indoor activities is understandable, and in many ways, they have become an integral part of growing up — but at what cost to a child’s health and development?
