Balance is one of the most important basic skills children can develop, but like most things in life, getting better takes time and practice. Having balance makes motor skills easier for your child and also reduces the likelihood of injury, increasing the probability that she will not only be involved with peers in games and sports activities but also participate in regular physical activities throughout her life.
Being “on balance” means having an even distribution of weight on each side of a vertical axis, but for young children, being on balance simply means not falling over!
While balance skills take time to develop, there are ways to improve them with practice. Doing activities together will teach your child how to use his muscles to adjust to changes in movement.
