How To Keep Children Healthy After Divorce


(Taylor, PA)—Parents face unique challenges after divorce—perhaps none more daunting than promoting and maintaining their children’s healthy lifestyles as they shuttle between two homes.

Proper diet as well as good study habits, extracurricular activities and robust athletics are the key to a child’s health and well-being, according to the U.S. Department of Education.

What is necessary is a way for parents to monitor their children’s lives, especially when supervision is divided between two separate households. That’s exactly what has been developed by Tara Amaral and Chris Frie, authors of the new book Our Great Kids.

Our Great Kids doubles as a communication tool for separated or divorced parents. Part journal, part organizer, this book will allow both parents to participate in their children’s lives together and be able to stay up to date with important appointments, events and the daily behaviors of their children.

But, along with the book, there is little doubt that parents play a vital role in developing healthy habits in their children

“The best way to teach your children healthy habits is to lead by example,” says Ms. Amaral. “If children see their parents having healthy habits, then they are more likely to follow suit.”

Developing healthy habits and making them part of the children’s daily routine takes time and effort. Even after divorce, it is important that both parents work together on developing healthy habits in their kids.

“Keeping children healthy is a priority for any parent,” says Mr. Frie. “Between hectic schedules and different household rules, parents can now successfully keep track of their children’s eating habits and well-being!”

Divorced parents need to ensure that the following habits are incorporated into their children’s everyday lives in both homes:

• Proper nutrition
• Regular exercise
• Adequate sleep
• Regular visits to a pediatrician

The authors have also created the Web site to go along with their new book. The site allows divorced parents to log into their children’s accounts to communicate important dates, daily activities and special things that their children did. Parents can also exchange photos and receive e-mail alerts to remind them of scheduled activities.

Having used their system with great success for several years, Ms. Amaral and Mr. Frie, both divorced parents, have been showing others how to develop healthy methods of communication so that the children of divorce aren’t negatively affected.
