Don’t worry if your child can’t walk well like a neighbour’s child because the development of each child varies as long as there are no physical abnormalities in the legs. If your child is slow in walking it may need to be a bit trained or stimulated so that the child is tempted to take the first step. Training toddlers to run quickly is not running short, you must train to develop muscle muscles of the hands and feet. How to? It’s not difficult, the easy and effective tips you can see in full in the description below.
Tips to make children walk faster
1. Learn to sit
Around the age of 4-6 months, most babies can sit alone or be helped. You can pull your baby’s hands together to be able to sit in a baby’s sleep on his back and sit him down. Don’t pull it fast but slowly and softly. Invite your baby to play when sitting can with toys that he likes for example hugging his doll.
2. Learn to crawl
Around the age of 6-10 months babies should be able to crawl, depending on their development there are those who are momentarily crawling and long-lasting crawling. Train your baby to crawl further than before by putting his favorite toy further in its place. Indirectly this will train the coordination of your toddler’s hands and feet.
3. Learning to lift himself
Around the age of 8 months the baby will prefer to be held in a standing state or reach for something to be able to stand for a table, chair or people around him. You can train your baby by grabbing two hands until the baby is standing. Often babies like to listen to music and bend their knees, stomping their feet to dance, it’s extra work for you. It can also train both legs and knees to be stronger and more flexible to be able to walk later on.
4. Learning to walk with help
Around the age of 9 months the baby can stand up straight without being held for a while. You can reach both hands to stand and train your baby to step forward by holding on to your hands. Your baby can also stick to one of your legs then you walk slowly.
Activities that can be very interesting for your child are pushing a chair or table which for them is more exciting because it can cause friction on the floor. At least you have to be patient with this noisy voice. I don’t think it’s important that your child is happy right.
5. Learning runs in the first step
Around the age of 9-12 months your child can stand alone without help, this balance is very important also to help in the baby’s first step. You can train your child by walking with the help of your hands and then releasing it slowly so that your child walks alone. Give praise when your child can do the first step and if he falls give your child the urge to try to walk again.
You can also be in front of him when your child walks and you walk backwards so that your child can walk further. Hold your favourite toy or food so your child is interested in achieving it.
What needs to be remembered here is that the development of each baby is not the same depending on the weight or difference in the baby’s spirit in learning something. The role of parents is very much needed here. Consult with your personal doctor how your child’s growth has been good or not. Re-read the child development book that you usually get at the time of pregnancy check up at the nearest health centre. Hopefully this information can be useful and thank you!
