12. I have noticed this with my grandson. Unhappily, my son and DIL don't

care for physical activity much, although my son does go to the gym regularly. His school does have recess, but it's not very long. When he gets home, he's more likely to play video games than anything. He does like to go out and play, but he does more of that at my house. I am pretty physically active for an old grandma, and we go for hikes, go catch bugs, go swimming at the Y, etc. I have noticed that I have more physical stamina than he does, which is worrisome. At age 8, he should run circles around grandma. All I can do is try to help some. I may start doing some light weightlifting with him, try to get him interested in that. And we'll keep hiking.
