Ten reasons to walk to school

Updated on September 10, 2012

1. Less traffic around the school, so kids are safer.

2. Fewer idling cars = less pollution = healthier air for the kids.

3. You save gas and money (technically, that's two reasons).

4. If you spill your coffee, you won’t stain your car upholstery.

5. Your dog will thank you.

6. Your waistline will thank you.

7. Your kid might actually talk to you while you’re walking.

8. You’re encouraging your kids to be active.

9. You will notice things you can’t see from a car – the sunrise, the neighbor’s pomegranate tree, a bird’s nest.

10. Fresh air and sunshine.

Go on....give it a try.

      marthamuldoon,

      Your post reminds me the school days whenever i went to school by foot and when some times I am late and take a run. Thanks for interested but short post. Keep it up like these in future too.

      Thanks! A friend gave me another reason:

      11. Your kid will be able to focus better in school after working off some nervous energy by walking to school.

      Anyone else have more?
