Kushagra’s Exercise Time
Under the bright morning sun, Kushagra and his mother started their usual push-up routine. Attentively, Kushagra watched and followed his mother’s instructions, pushing his body up and down with his little arms. “One, two, three, four…!” his mother started counting every time they went down. Seeing that, Kushagra loudly counted together.
“Roz exercises karne se chote bachon ka motor skills badh ta hai aur woh physically active hotey hain. Isliye main uske saath roz kuch na kuch chote exercise karti hoon (Regular exercise helps younger children develop motor skills and become physically active. Therefore, I regularly try doing small exercises with my child)," said Bhavana
