and yourself. sometimes that can be really hard to do. they suggest parents limit children to one or two sports at a time and set priorities for school work and getting good grades. they say it is a reminder that your child and -- and remind your child that family is important also. make it a goal to spend time together at least once night a week. parents need to take time for yourself in and your own hobbies and not get burnt out trying to accommodate your children's schedule. that is a peg fekt our next interview, fit for moms. this is about you. >> michelle: jessica peralta who is the owners of fit for moms as shaking your head as you were talking about shaking time for yourself as a mom. making sure you do the things that you like. one part that caught my attention is spending time with the family. what you have created here for moms in our community does both of those things. it gives moms a way to workout but those moms like myself who need to take my son with me have
