Sometimes a visiting parent will rush in when a child exhibits risky play. We do our best to comfort the parent and teach them how to watch and wait. In this picture, on this day, the child never made it to a standing position, but that's okay. They will, when they are ready for it. We try to teach the children to listen to their bodies. We do not rush in to help or assist as that is when accidents most often happen. Allowing a child to engage in risky play, helps them build confidence in their own actions andbuilds strength of body, and strength of mind.
