It’s important to remember that our kids are unique and to encourage their uniqueness. Find their strengths and interests because this is what is helping them to learn. It’s true for all of us, not just the kids. Have a great week discovering “Uniqueness”!
Researchers show that children and adolescents who spend most of their time barefoot develop motor skills differently from those who habitually wear shoes. Published in Frontiers in Pediatrics, this is the first study to assess the relevance of growing up shod vs. barefoot on jumping, balancing and sprinting motor performance during different stages of childhood and adolescence. Results suggest that regular physical activity without shoes may improve children’s and adolescents’ balancing and jumping skills.
Regular barefoot time at home should be encouraged.
Anything is Possible with Hard Work, Patience and Perseverance.
An important lesson from a 3 year old boy.
A 3 year old Alabama boy overcame severe scoliosis and infant torticollis in his neck with 2 years of infant physical therapy to become a ‘Trick Shot Titan’. Using a ping pong ball, he gets the ball into the cup every time!
