“In order to learn how to ride a horse, you have to learn how to fall off it,” the wise Nikolai Mikhailovich Przhevalsky once said, once again flying out of the saddle. Nikolai Mikhailovich was a grown man and knew how to take care of his own safety, so each time he grouped up when the mare threw him over his head. A one and a half year old child, who recently discovered the delights of upright walking, has never heard of various methods of safety, so every bump, side, and even his own unbalanced body inevitably returns him to the ground. Therefore, parents are so eager to protect their child from another hard landing. Or maybe in vain? Or is it still a sacred parental duty? nine0003

How high are you going?

When a baby takes its first steps, mothers, fathers and grandmothers have tears of emotion in their eyes. When the first steps end with a landing on the fifth point, tenderness gives way to anxiety. But, God forbid, the head will outweigh the "stern", and the child will somersault forward. And then tears far from tenderness come out of him. To protect the child from injuries and tears, parents begin to control his every step: support, catch, dress up in all sorts of assistive devices such as walkers and jumpers. “Thus, they do a disservice to the baby: from now on, the child will wait to be caught and secured, which means that the mechanisms for developing internal security and coordination of movements will stop working,” explains pediatrician Andrey Sokolov .

Thus, the child will fall more often, and each time he will hit more and more painfully, because in childhood he did not learn to control his body. “When going out for a walk, parents should hold the child by the hand, but not for insurance against falls, but to prevent sudden running out onto the roadway,” the doctor continues. “But catching a child by the hand when he falls is dangerous!” “The most common injury is shoulder dislocation, because mothers, as a rule, do not have time to keep the child from falling and pull him up,” supports his child traumatologist Ivan Lukinenko . In fact, if you look at it, the height from which the baby falls is small, and the speed with which he moves does not significantly aggravate the fall. Therefore, even if the baby hits, he will not be able to inflict serious injury on himself by falling, but he will learn to control the body and keep balance.

Overboard

Doctors are sure that falling from a height is much more dangerous: from a sofa, a changing table, even from a stroller. “Very often, children fall overboard when mothers raise or lower the stroller up the stairs,” says Andrey Kozlov, Head of the Department for the Treatment of Vertebrogenic Pathologies and the Nervous System, Chelyabinsk City Hospital No. 15 . And the traumatologists of the children's regional hospital can tell many cases when kids fell from balconies and windows. “The mosquito net creates the illusion of a reliable support, but in reality it cannot withstand the child’s weight, because the child has to cuddle up to it in order to see what is happening on the street through the net,” recalls Oleg Starikov, , head of the Department of Traumatology and Orthopedics of the CHODKB . It is from such falls that a child must be protected, because the price for them is not only a serious injury, but also the life of a small person. nine0003

“It is very important not only the surface on which the baby steps, but also all kinds of obstacles in his way,” says kindergarten teacher Marina Vyalova . When stumbling, a child can fall on a toy and be injured, so there should be no wires, bent sheets of linoleum, small round parts on which a child can slip on the play area. With a toddler who has already begun to walk, it is better to walk on a platform with a special coating - rubber, grassy, ​​sand. It is less traumatic than asphalt or pebbles. nine0003

Not a child, but a horse

There are a lot of tips on how to protect a child from injuries, but at the same time not harm the development of walking skills. The most common is children's "reins". According to their creators, the mother can control not only the range of the child’s hike, but also insure him in case of a fall. “It is very difficult to walk with Leroy, because she holds my finger, and I am 187 centimeters tall, and I have to bend over three deaths. The back falls off, ”Antoinette complains on the Babyblog.ru forum. On the one hand, such reins are just a salvation for tall mothers: there is no need to curl up and you can always save the baby from a bloody nose. “And mine seems to be suspended by the shoulder blades. She can’t walk normally, and it’s not convenient for me to lead her like that, ”the forum member Katya opposes her. “You don’t need to buy this device, otherwise the child will get used to hanging on them and will walk in them for up to a year and a half and fall forward, thinking that he won’t fall anyway,” mother Olga insists. There is no unanimous opinion here and cannot be. Each mother must decide for herself whether her child needs additional insurance or if he needs to fill the prescribed number of cones in order to learn how to avoid danger. The main thing is not to rush to extremes. A disregard for the dangers that surround the little man is just as pernicious as the fanatical desire to protect the baby from everything even the slightest threatening. nine0003
