Why Toddlers Climb They climb because they can (or at least can try to). Kids start to gain greater control over their body movements at around 18 months of age. 2 They realize they can throw that ball, run fast across the park, and pull themselves up onto furniture. As their motor skills develop, so does their curiosity. The two combined propel the now much more mobile toddler into their environment where they keep gathering this mapping information, building on their coordination and further boosting their development.
Or as we like to describe it – climbing on and touching every gosh-darned thing!Once your toddler discovers the joys of climbing (anything and everything!), here’s what you can do to keep him safe. Once your toddler discovers the joys of climbing (anything and everything!), here’s what you can do to keep him safe. What it is: Mount Everest, here I come!
When toddlers become proficient at walking, it’s only a matter of. Have you ever wondered why some kids hang, lean, and climb on EVERYTHING? Well, when kids hang, lean, climb, push, and pull, they gain access to a certain type of sensory input called proprioception. Proprioception is related to the idea of body awareness. Three children later, not much has changed in these toddler years, but I now know that this climbing stage is developmentally normal.
These little ones are discovering the world around them, learning about independence, and using much needed hand/eye coordination to get into all kinds of good trouble. Well of course we all know that we want our children to be safe. The most important thing to note is that you have to provide a safe environment for your child. So while you want to encourage, perhaps your two year old, to be climbing and exploring, you really don’t want them to be on high surfaces where they’re going to fall and hurt themselves. I don’t feel that toddlers or even preschoolers have good enough judgement for risks to allow climbing on surfaces that aren’t designed for it.
It may just be a media coverage bias as opposed to something common, but every now and again it seems like you hear about some child seriously/permanently injured jumping off something trying to fly. Well, by now you know how normal it is to see a toddler climbing out of his crib. Yes, young ones have an insatiable desire to climb; and it helps them develop their judgement, planning skills, self-confidence, balance, perseverance and eye/hand coordination.
Teach your child to climb down “When my son started climbing at 9 months, I taught him the safest way to get down. That way, I know that if he does get up somewhere, he has a better chance of getting himself down safely. Here’s what I taught him: Go down feet first.
Lie on your belly and slowly slide down till your feet touch the floor.”. They are craving that heavy work, deep muscle, head tilting movement. And climbing and jumping gives them the input they crave. So you have a child who loves to jump and climb on EVERYTHING.
At times they may try to jump or climb on things that are not safe.
