McMurray, Robert G.; And Others
Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, v64 n3 p249-55 Sep 1993
This study examined the effect of parental attitudes and exercise habits on child fitness and activity levels. Parents and children completed surveys on exercise, activity, and attitude. Results indicated that parental attitudes and practices had minimal effect on child fitness. Findings indicate the need to examine other factors in the child's environment. (SM)
