First paragraph (this article has no abstract)

Since publication of our article [1], we observed an error in the coding of the moderate and vigorous physical activity (MVPA) variable. This error affects the mean level of MVPA in the sample, but does not significantly change any of the associations observed between parentalbehaviors and adolescents' physical activity. Please find below a description of the amendments. Sentence numbers are counted from the beginning of the section/subsection. Amended version of tables 1 and 2 are also presented here.
