@ running and jumping

Toddlers love to run and jump — but getting both feet to leave the ground at once is harder than most of us remember, and frustrating for the child who wants to but can't. You can help her practice this skill safely by letting her bounce on a bed or low trampoline while you hold both her hands. Putting some pillows on the floor and letting her jump onto them off something low (the sofa or a child-size footstool) can also help. A big, sturdy bouncing ball with a handle will allow her to get that airborne feeling she craves, and she'll practice pushing off the ground with both feet.

If your child's the quiet type, encourage running and jumping by combining it with something she likes. Acting out nursery rhymes might get her started (the mouse ran up the clock, the cow jumped over the moon). Take her to the park with a friend and encourage her to run back and forth between you (hint: If she gets a big hug and a swing through the air at each end, she'll move more quickly!). Draw a "racetrack" in chalk on the playground or in sand at the beach or draw a series of boxes or circles and suggest she jump from one to another. If she's just learning letters, draw a few very large letters and see if she can run around them, outlining them with her feet.

=> tapi yang paling 'tak hengat' tu... bila time Kaisah nak dance... 'ibu, ibu... pegang-pegang...', well, i have to hold her hands tightly as she will be swinging round and round... pastu mintak dilepaskan... dan fenin kepala sowang-sowang... hihihihihi...
