Change in parental influence on children's physical activity over time

Parents are believed to play a pivotal role in their children's health-related behaviors, including physical activity (PA). It is currently unclear, however, at what developmental period parental socialization has the strongest influence on child and/or adolescent PA levels. The purpose of this study was to take a developmental approach to examine parental influence on children's PA levels over time. Parents (N = 70; 68 mothers) completed a questionnaire assessing PA habits, amount of time they engage in PA with their child, and reasons for their child's PA participation at baseline (during child's preschool years) and at follow-up, which occurred from 1 to 9 years later. The results indicate that the relationship between parents' and children's physical activity patterns and parents' reasons for their children's participation in organized physical activity change over time. Parents also reported spending approximately 60 min per week engaged in physi...

Understanding Parents’ Perceptions of Children’s Physical Activity

Currently, there is little research on mothers’ perceptions of the social support they provide for their children to be physically active, which could yield important information in the construction of interventions that promote active lifestyles in childhood. We conducted individual interviews and three focus groups with 15 mothers of children 6 to 8 years old. The data were thematically analyzed using a qualitative approach, applying Ecological Model constructs to guide coding and categorization of results and the discussion of these results. The majority of mothers acknowledged that their sons and daughters were relatively less active and indicated that they perceived a need for increased physical activity among their children. The use of social support strategies was minimal, limited to accompanying their children. Mothers reported environmental factors such as cost, time constraints, lack of extracurricular-community activities and unsafe environments as the main barriers to their children’s physical activity. This study generated three main categories of results: the information gathered following the ecological model as a framework for analysis generated suggests that mothers are not aware of lack of physical activity of their children; mothers do not know ways to use social support for active lifestyles in their children, and recognize barriers to increase children’s physical activity. These research findings may contribute to health promotion strategies and programs that educate parents on how to effectively support their child in developing an active style of life.

Parental Influences and the Relationship to their Children’s Physical Activity Levels

Nathan Chiarlitti

Engaging in a physically active lifestyle relates positively to current health and reduces chances of chronic diseases in the future. Given escalating health care costs, it is paramount to reduce illnesses associated with a lack of physical activity and thus critical to identify factors that influence physical activity - especially in children, with the opportunity for a lifetime impact. One of these influencing factors may be parents/guardians. The intent of this study was to examine the relationship between children’s physical activity levels and parental factors including parental physical activity, support/encouragement, restrictiveness, and self-reported participation. Data was collected from 15 child-parent pairs with children ranging in age from 7 to 10 years. Daily physical activity levels were determined from pedometer data using a Piezo SC-Step Pedometer. Number of steps and moderate and vigorous physical activity were extracted from the pedometers and levels of support/en...

Vello Hein

Background. It is well known that parents influence physical activity of their children. Determining the factors related to parents’ perception of the importance of physical activity and physical fitness enables enhancing the promotion of physical activity among children in the future. Methods. A total of 237 parents of children aged between 5 and 10 years participated in the study. Confirmatory factor analysis was used to estimate factor structure of the questionnaire “Parents Perceptions of the Importance of Physical Activity and Their Children´s Ability Questionnaire”. To investigate the differences between groups Independent-sample t-test was used. Cohen’s d was used to estimate effect size. Results. Confirmatory factor analyses showed that the eight-issue two-factorial model psychometric parameters were acceptable in order to assess parents’ perception of the importance of physical activity and ability (RMSEA = .072; NFI = .97; CFI = .98; NNFI = .98). Parents who were physicall...
