Often you have to see a situation when a mother pulls down a 2-3 year old baby: do not run, you will fall! And, like, correctly straightens: it will fall, it will hurt, it will get dirty … but only, it seems.
What is a small child? It is not who, but what? This is a small motor, exploring the world. Falls – one of the available ways for this. A huge amount of energy circulates inside the baby, which must find a way out and be replaced by another. Mental work in the usual sense of the child is not yet available, it remains physical. It is too small to chop firewood, but to run, jump, drop, pull, fall, get up – just right.
What will happen if you deprive the crumb of this opportunity? Stagnation. The swamp. The decline in all other indicators, including the rate of mental development. The child will progress very slowly, because it was not for nothing that we barely made a crow for the barely born baby, stroked the back and tickled the heels.
Moreover, not every fall is really dangerous. Moms (as well as other relatives) should learn to separate the levels of potential danger. The first falls are the first victories. When does a baby learn to rise from his knees, if not now? When to learn the hardness of the earth?
Moreover, nature, forgive me for being rude, is also not a fool. She took care of the safety of our kids in advance.
First, the brain of a small child is surrounded by a greater amount of circulatory fluid than the brain of an adult. This is a kind of airbag. But over time, it disappears … What will happen if the baby that has not recognized in childhood begins to fall at a more mature age? Concussions. Bruises. What will pass without a trace in 2-3 years at 4 can cause a fatal outcome.
Secondly, the children have not yet learned to be afraid. If an adult should be able to group together to reduce the risk of injury, the child falls like a bag. And it is the absence of tension in the muscles that saves him! This wonderful gift is only for small children. They fell, got up and ran on. Well, except that the palms are torn apart – it doesn’t matter, it will heal!
No, I’m lying. So falls another category of people – drunk. Vusmert, zyuzu, boots … Yes, whatever. Drunk to a state of insanity. But everyone has heard that the drunken sea is knee-deep – and so are the children too.
But is it really necessary to fall? Is there really a child who did not fall will have problems? Yes! Surely next to your baby there is at least one who was led by the hood, isn’t it? And now, most likely, he is led on a children’s bridle, because, despite his age, he still walks badly. Alas, but even research has shown: how can we not learn to breathe for it, so can not we learn to fall. The child must master it on their own. So, dear mothers, we stock up on motherwort and go to the playground!
Broken knees – be!
