Where is my Child's Balance?! - Why Does My Child Keep Falling Over

WHERE is my Child’s BALANCE?!

.

Have you ever been falling asleep and you almost feel like you are floating almost like you are in an upright position? 

. 

And then...

.

You are falling...

.

Falling...

.

FALLING FAST...

.

and WHAM!

.

You startle Big Time and you are back in your body in a horizontal position. 

.

Knowing where we are at in space is Super Important. 

.

I am not talking about in relationship to the floor, but in your relationship to gravity and your force interaction relationships. 

.

Your body needs to know when it is, Horizontal, or Vertical whether or not I am laying on the floor or hanging in the air.

.

When we move, we should be building a Symbiotic Relationship With Gravity. 

.

We experience gravity in 360 degrees. It's all around us. 

.

That being said our balance has to be in 360 degrees.

.

A child shouldn't be randomly falling, (yes we may occasionally trip on things, I am not talking about that kind of falling). 

.

Falling should not be a constant in a child's life. 

.

Startling should not be a constant in a child's life. 

.

If you find yourself saying things like, "My child is so unbalanced," or "My child keeps falling."

.

This is a sign to you that your child's gravity milestones are off and their ability to manipulate forces is off. 

.

To improve balance you can't focus on balance, but you must focus on movement momentum. 

.

It's like learning to ride a bike. 

.

If you focus on the feet, the bike, and the ground, you will fall.

.

Instead, you need to look where you are going, and peddle. 

.

The balance happens naturally when you start gaining momentum.  

.

When it comes to working with your child and you are focusing on building muscle, a milestone event, or skipping milestones, or strapping a kid up, balance will become more and more difficult. 

.

Instead, you want to focus on movement momentum. 

.

This includes establishing your child's gravity milestones and establishing the absolute horizon and the absolute vertical, working on your child's buoyancy and so on. 

.

A successful milestone is not about an event but the parts and pieces of movement that make up that event.
