How much toddlers
When a child begins to walk the handles in a walker, on their own without the help of parents?These questions are very important for young parents, because walking is a sign of normal development of the child and, in a sense unleashes parents.Every month the baby will develop their motor skills, which means that it will be less and less need to be on hand.
need to wait very long.Independently toddler starts usually in the age of 9 months.Someone a little earlier, someone later.It depends on the child's body, his environment and nature.In general rule, when the child begins to walk - it is up to the age of 1.3 years.
Should I teach this important skill kid and how?Many parents want their kid learned to walk as soon as possible.And the easiest "simulator" for this are considered walkers.But firstly, they are very bulky, not for each apartment.And secondly, it is rather not an assistant for physical development, but just something like a child entertainment.
Another way - a walk withthe child, by maintaining with his pen.And many parents pull up the hands of children and they are kept.That is, children are literally in limbo.Of course, this does not help the child to go faster, but most unpleasant - can lead to injury.For example, a dislocated shoulder.
And yet, how to help your child?Modern pediatricians say that no help is not necessary.Parents should only provide the space where he can crawl in complete safety for the child to sit, stand, and then take the first small steps.And let parents "retarded" children reassure the fact that if a child soon began to walk - it's not always a good thing, because the spine may not yet be ready for such pressures.And the longer and more actively crawling baby - the better for him.All healthy children living in a society, begin to walk.
But what if the child has already started to take steps himself, but suddenly stopped?I need a little time.Most likely, the baby has experienced some kind of stress, which is why the physical development slowed.Let him spend more time with their children about the same age and older, who have themselves go, and all the fears pass.To the doctor should contact in the event that the kid never went to 1.5 years.And is not interested in how many children begin to walk the familiar, not to feel a sense of inferiority in the event of discovery of the "underdevelopment" of your child.Many adults tend to exaggerate the achievements of their children.Do not try to be anyone else.
