By Catherine Holecko:
As a parent, one of my most important jobs is to help my children grow up healthy and strong. I also want us all to enjoy our time together. Active play helps us meet both those goals (and keeps me healthier too). As a journalist, I'm trained to find critical information and resources and share them in an accessible way. On this site, I'll use both my personal and professional experience to share the latest news and advice about family fitness.
