This week, guest Carl Abery discusses ways you can help your child build healthier habits and become more active.
Carl is a personal trainer and fitness professional working with individuals of all ages. As a child, he was fostered and is now passionate about working with young people leaving the care system to help them create healthier habits and learn stronger coping mechanisms.

In a break with tradition, Carl has recommended a poem rather than a book to read. He’s chosen If by Rudyard Kipling for its inspiring message about overcoming adversity.
Carl shares three tips during the episode:
1: Find an exercise your child enjoys - don’t try to force them to play a sport you played as a child.
2: Encourage them to keep trying, even when it is tough for both you and them.
3: Encourage your child to make healthy food choices and have a balanced diet.
