Say this, not that

By February 19, 2013

Follow me on:

Sometimes we are our own worst enemies when it comes to our own health, and even our kids'. I rounded up a list of 7 excuses and obstacles that can interfere with children's physical activity. But don't worry if you're guilty of one or two; I also have suggestions for getting past them.

Across About.com Health this week, you'll find lots of "What Not to Say" advice. Dozens of guides have contributed to this effort to help all of us improve communication and avoid embarrassment. Read along so you know what hurts and what helps when you encounter a smoker, a marathon runner, someone who follows a gluten-free diet, a colon cancer patient and more.
