Kath Healy, from Nature Play WA joined Kirste and Dan to talk about Women in Sport UK who have put out an amazing podcast called ‘Daughter and Dads: Empowering Change‘ 

Which discusses the importance of rough and tumble play from dads with daughters. How dads can help play a part in helping their daughter develop vital movement skills.  “We have this idea that girls are delicate little flowers that need to be protected when really what they need is that same rough and tumble play boys have with dads.”

Last time Kath shared how teenage girls physically activity drastically drops. So rough and tumble play can help vital movement skills, balance and different combinations of muscle groups working together. “From a very young age the more you do that…the better chance they have of being physically active as they get older.”
