Swinging Time

25 October 2017

Swinging strengthens your child’s core and helps with the development of balance. It’s a simple activity that your child loves and that is also great for him. Here are a few reasons why you should let your child swing away.

  • The rocking motion of swinging stimulates the cerebral cortex, helping him to focus.
  • Swinging provides help with sensory integration, which will serve as a foundation for more complex learning and behavior later on.
  • Swinging has a calming effect on kids.
  • Swinging encourages social interaction and builds his social skills.
  • As he swings, his perceptual skills are developing, a useful tool for the coming years.
  • By swinging, your child learns to grasp spatial awareness, as he looks around while suspended.
  • Your child’s gross motor skills develop every time he swings, as he pumps his legs, jumps, and runs.
  • His fine motor skills are also being worked on, as he develops his grip strength, and the coordination between hand, arm, and fingers.
  • Twisting on a swing can also help to improve his spatial awareness, as well as his rhythm, balance, and muscle control.
