Children are made to wiggle, jiggle, run, jump, flip, flop, fidget, roll, spring, slide, pounce, hop, jump, skip, balance, sneak, and slither. This movement wires brains. Our big human brains evolved as our species spread out and explored the world. Expecting children to sit still is not only a losing battle, but a losing battle that impacts brain development. Encourage movement every chance you get.
