There are many reasons to watch the Olympics with your family this year. For Canadians, a sense of pride and honor goes along with watching many of our citizens win medals for our country. The Olympic Games are a special time that doesn't happen every day and those who participate in them have trained long and hard to be there. Supporting our Canadian athletes is a great way to show your children what it means to be Canadian and supportive of those individuals.

There are many different sports televised from the Olympics that there is always something to watch. Whether you are watching the Women's Ice Hockey game, figure skating or even the skiers, children of all ages can be enthralled with what the athletes go through in order to complete against people from all around the world.

Be sure to talk to your child about how important practice and training is for those who are competing. Let them know how much time and effort goes into being the best for Canada and representing our great Country in front of the world. You never know if you may have a future Olympian at your own home!

Let your child know about the healthy diet an athlete must follow and getting lots of rest and try to encourage your children to enlist in their healthy lifestyle as well. Athletes and children alike need good nutrition, exercise and rest in order to remain healthy and ready for anything.
