Climbing Too High
Climbing is a form of risky play that is specifically mentioned by many experts when talking about early childhood development. Climbing is categorized as ‘locomotor play,’ and it helps children to develop qualities like muscle strength and endurance. It also helps them form the ability to distinguish depth, shape, size, and other perceptual or spatial abilities.
Climbing is also a significant form of play for helping to curb fears. If your daughter falls off the monkey bars, she’ll likely get back up and try again, but if she’s not encouraged to try she won’t learn to experiment with appropriate limits.
