Abstract. The Romanian legislation, in line with the international norms, provides the child with the right to education and to plenary, harmonious development of personality, vocations, mental and physical skills. All components of physical health – social, mental, emotional and spiritual health – alongside an active lifestyle contribute to the fulfilment of the above mentioned goals. The article is a plea based on legal Romanian grounds for physical education which the child has the right and possibility to practice in an organized setting – the school. We also discuss some causes for which quite a few parents in Romania encourage or support children not to attend the physical education classes under multiple pretexts, emphasizing the negative effects that such an attitude has upon society.
