Robert F. Weiss, DPM says, "In the absence of long-term studies on children’s running, many debates have taken place. My thinking has always been that running is a sport that everyone can enjoy, if done at the individual’s own level of fitness and ability. There are, of course, overuse problems in children just as there are in adults. It is also important to remember that a child’s thermo-regulatory system is not as well formed or effective as an adult’s. Yet, they seem to have a greater psychological tolerance for heat and have shown to tolerate cold poorly. Therefore, care should be taken when running in extreme weather conditions."

 
"The parent of a young runner should do what he or she can to keep running fun for the child. Try not to push. Let running be something the child chooses to do. Keep it in moderation, and allow the child a way out if he or she so chooses. The danger comes when the pressure to run is placed on him or her by enthusiastic parents, coaches, or peers. That is when the child will run even though it hurts," says Dr. Weiss.
