Physical Education Teacher On Children Inactivity

Physical Education teacher at The Campden Park Secondary School, Theon Gordon, says that safety concerns can cause parents to keep their children away from outside physical activities.

Gordon, speaking on NBC Radio’s “Views on Issues” programme, says that sometimes parents prefer to have their children home on the computer, rather than letting them join a sports group, because there is a fear of what danger might befall them.

He added that there is less physical activity because of the country’s development and because there aren’t many organisations that children can join.
