Because parents will not always be there, and in any moving game, sports are often situations where the fall can not be avoided.
• A terrain that has a smooth lift. It's a flat paved road leading uphill, or ramps of buildings. At lifting the child slightly bends forward, at descent - back. To successfully move through any terrain, the child must learn to move his center of gravity depending on the angle of inclination of a particular surface. In addition, when the baby goes down, he learns to walk faster. As the development of the vestibular apparatus, the speed of the child's walking will increase noticeably. The height of the rise should be increased gradually. As the vestibular and respiratory apparatus develops, the child will climb higher and higher slopes.
• Crossed terrain. It can be forest, arable land, pasture with tall grass, sand dunes. Here the child will have an abundance of obstacles.
Start with the terrain that causes the child to stop first, then carefully overcome
How to teach to fall? The most important thing is not to disturb the child.

In this case, do not encourage the child to run. It is better to make longer walks on an increasingly complex terrain. Independently making its way through various obstacles, your child will learn to balance, moving the center of gravity from side to side or back and forth. In addition, he will learn to watch where to put his foot.
All this will contribute to the development of his vestibular apparatus and, accordingly, the ability to maintain balance.
