So after watching my kids these past
months as they get older and more
creative, I can't help but wonder if more
of this at their age... -------------------->
...would result in requiring less of these as we get to our age. 'Our' is meant collectively, as I know it's a catch all -- having just turned 37, I'm finding myself more & more fitting into the 'Our age' category. Anywho....
No, the top picture is not at DNS or PRI exercise (at least not that I am aware), it's simply my youngest messing around on the mats with the foam roll.
No coaching. No guidance. Just a young neuromusculoskeletal system trying to "figure it out" (though lately 'figuring it out on the mats' has entailed what can only be described as pseudo-grappling with her older sister!)
Observing this process makes me see the intrinsic nature of movement and how it develops. Kids get it -- they move, they explore, and they develop. I'm thinking DNS my be on my short list, I've been drawn to it for some time and now I need to jump in and get through the actual hands on courses.
This conversation also begins to make me aggravated by the lack of movement our children are getting during their school day, and the constant cutting of things like physical education and sports which provides them the opportunity to build their neurological connections, strength, flexibility, and so on. Education shouldn't just be about sitting still in a chair absorbing facts and information, movement learning can only enhance the process of mental/intellectual learning....but that's a topic for another time!
