Rebounding, also known as jumping on a trampoline, has more advantages than you may have considered. There are the little known benefits of trampolines that we have researched and want to share with you.
Jumping on a trampoline is ideal for those with motor skill challenges. When you’re jumping on a trampoline it enhances motor skills, coordination and balance. Physical activity of any sort helps develop neurological skills. A parent doesn’t have to invest in a trampoline because his or her child has motor or balance issues and in fact, if that is the case they will want to talk with their doctor first to make certain it is a safe option.
Whether you get an in-ground or an above ground trampoline, you need to assure yourself that your child is as safe as he or she can be.
When your children are learning to walk, that is too soon to put them on a trampoline. They need to have the firm ground beneath them and learn to stand on their own two feet, as it were. Once the child has learned to walk, jumping on a trampoline is a great way for him or her to strengthen their cores and stand on an uneven surface.
The Little Known Benefits Of Trampolines
We never recommend more than one person on a trampoline at a time, but when your toddler is on the trampoline you may want to join him and hold his hands so he can jump around and feel safe. Don’t jump, yourself, when your child is on there or he could get injured. Don’t toss your child into the air. Hold his hands and let him jump and feel the rebound beneath his feet.
A child may want to jump and roll around on the trampoline without mom and dad holding her hands, but you never want to leave her alone on the trampoline. As long as the springs are covered and the net is in place, let her jump and roll around to her heart’s content and have fun while working on her balance.
