Run for fun

Stay grounded

Children should be allowed to run barefoot as much as possible, as long as the environment is safe. Ballet slippers, water shoes and flip-flops as well as any well-known brand sports shoes provide protection to the feet without too much developmental interference. The ideal shoe should be flexible, lightweight and thin. When your child can wiggle their toes and are comfortable in their shoes, you’ve found the right fit!

Managing booboos

Children often name things as they feel them, so it’s important to consider their discomforts. When discomfort changes into pain or injury, make sure your child gets plenty of rest for a few days; it’s often all that’s needed to make booboos go away. Only use medication when it’s absolutely necessary.
