Dear Editor,

I would like to share ideas on the publication “Do sing physical exercise intensity during the COVlD-19 quarantine: Does perceptual self-regulation work in children?1.” Rodríguez-Núñez raised an important is sue on physical exercise of children during COVID-19 quarantine1. The perceptual self-regulation might be an important factor but there are also many other im portant determinants. Indeed, the children can have exercise at any places but the important limitation might be the socioeconomical status. Quarantine in a big home of the rich family might easily to allow exer cise than the poor one. Finally, the type of exercise is another important concern. If exercise is performed in group, it is also a question on the social distancing concept. Not only the exercise but also other aspects including to development and educational manage ment of the children should be focused2. The topic of COVID-19 quarantine for the children is an interes ting issue for further studies.
