Standing with support
Jun 27, 2018
Once the child has learned to climb the furniture, he is delighted with his new acquisition and the kind that opens from here, from above, so decides to stay here for a while, developing his ability to stand with support. But at the first attempts he loses his balance when he tries to deploy his tottering feet and get off the toes. As soon as the child learns to stand, like a small ballerina, putting his feet completely on the floor and turning them out, he will be able to keep the balance better.
Allow the baby to climb the leg of your trousers, and you will feel progress in his standing ability. Previously, you felt like it was hanging on you, clinging to your trousers and for keeping your balance, and for support. Gradually, you will feel less and less weight of the child, because he will hold on to you only for the sake of balance.
Walking around the support
As soon as the child has learned to stand, leaning against a sofa or a low table, do not expect that he will stand in one place. For the first time moving around the pedestal, the child is likely to get confused in his legs, taking steps to the side. Soon he will find out that walking sideways is uncomfortable. See how the child will solve this problem. He will unfold his legs, then his feet, so that they can walk forward, not sideways, and then turn the upper half of their body in the same direction as the lower one. Now he learns to put one foot in front of the second and walks around the table, holding first with both hands, and then with only one.
Now that the child can stand and walk around the props, he wants to stand and play. Put the toys on the low table and watch how he will entertain himself for five minutes or so.
Caution: The ability to walk around a support is an achievement that not only causes joy, but can also lead a child into trouble. Now that the child is attracted by the game on the table, he will grab and knock on the table everything that will be within his reach on the journey. Take away sharp and beating objects, as well as everything that a child can take in his mouth, from his coffee tables or any other low tables that the kid probably will not leave without.
In the course of locomotor development, a child progresses from crawling to lifting on a pedestal,using
your hands to pull up.
By the end of the first year, crawling is turning into lasagne- mania. Children love to walk around the around the parents' desktops and grab the dangling telephone cords or any other items, to which can reach.
