What is the essential amount of motor practice time required in a child between birth and age eight with significant emotional impacts so that its motor development is sufficient? To start off, this question sets up different uncertainties, and their absolute and generalized answer is, at first glance, unviable. Still, we are in a culture of quantification and reasoning, and we need to tackle certain doubts in order to approach such a growing problem amongst our children in the Information Society as lack of, both, spontaneous and directed physical activity in their vital space which is growingly being substituted by other, more sedentary, activities.
