Here at Xtreme Gymnastics, we use plenty of strategies to help our little athletes effectively develop their gross motor coordination while they’re having fun. For instance, they love the parallel bars and trampolines, as well as the sensation of jumping from the spring board. In addition to the activities we facilitate, there are plenty you can do with your children at home.
Even if they don’t necessarily realize it, just about all parents play significant roles in assisting their babies’ development by moving them through space in a variety of ways. For example, you’ve probably bounced your baby playfully on your knee, or extended soothing comfort by rhythmically swaying with him or her as you walked around the room at bedtime or naptime.
When you think about children and responsibility, you probably consider them in terms of the need for you to care for their well-being. At Xtreme Gymnastics, we’d like to suggest that you can also give your children their fair share of obligations around the house. If you get started when they’re just a few years old, you can effectively gear them toward successful futures.
All parents want their children to become responsible individuals, and at Xtreme Gymnastics, we believe it’s best to begin teaching responsibility as early as possible. In fact, there’s no reason you can’t get started during toddlerhood.
Obviously, your two-year-old is not yet capable of thorough cleaning or maintaining a list of chores, but he or she likely has a strong urge to mimic you.
