[en] The development of motor abilities plays an important role in the general
development of children and adolescents. In recent years, several studies have
shown that the motor abilities of today’s German children and adolescents are
worse than 20 or 30 years ago. In this review, studies dealing with this topic are
presented and discussed critically. The literature review then focuses on studies
realized in Germany. Results show that a decrease of motor performance is
only observed in the late childhood and in the adolescence (older than 10
years). A possible reason might be the more frequently use of media and the
change in the leisure time behavior of today’s children and adolescents.
