Child Care: Learning to Walk in Reno, Nevada

Posted on 12-01-2014


Parents want to foster peak brain development, good physical development, and mobility in their young child. Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Reno, Nevada, offers the following information to help you know what to look for and how to assist your child in learning to walk so you can provide the best infant care:

Neck and back exercise

For your child to walk properly, it is essential to develop strong neck muscles. You can assist in this process by giving your child “tummy-time” while awake. Place your child on the tummy so that he or she can begin to lift the head and attempt to reach for objects. This exercise will help build the neck muscles that aid in providing balance when standing and walking.

Crawling and sitting

Between the ages of six and ten months, many infants will begin to crawl and display signs of attempting to sit up. Sitting and crawling are both fundamental to your child’s ability to walk, although some might skip the crawling phase and go straight into walking. Once a child is mobile, it is crucial to child-proof the house to ensure safety of movement.

When walking occurs

At about twelve to fifteen months of age, a child will be able to stand without help and will start walking. The first steps will be wobbly, but during this period your child will learn about balance and mobility. It is vital that a parent watchfully supervise the child at all times, and make sure the area surrounding the new walker is free from hazards.
