The Importance of Practicing Child Motor Development

Motor development, is only one of the many stages of child development. Among them, is the child's obligation to master two forms of motor development, namely gross motor skills and fine motor skills, both of which are very important for their growth and development and are independent.

Before we go deeper, let us first know, what is the difference between gross motor and fine motor. Broadly speaking, gross motor is body movements associated with large muscles (core muscles) as in the limbs and arms, on the contrary, fine motor skills are associated with smaller muscles, to do something that is more complicated.

Practicing Little Motor Rough Motor Skills
Our body moves using large muscles to carry out daily activities. An example of gross motoric form is gross walking jumping or running. This includes eye and hand coordination such as throwing and kicking skills.

What is the importance of practicing gross motor skills in child development? Like the sentence above, it takes good gross motor skills so that children are able to do their daily activities. The movements in gross motor also function to make a child's body healthier, because he is able to move well and actively play. Playing is actually not just 'the world of children', yes, ma'am, but it can also be a place to teach children to create and imagine. Play also teaches children to interact also makes it easier for children to be accepted by those around them.

Gross motor skills will also affect fine motor skills, for example, the ability of children to be able to sit with good posture during class, helping children to be able to carry out other learning activities such as drawing, coloring or cutting handicrafts.

What should be built to train the gross motor development of children?

Build strength and endurance of the muscles of the body and build the ability of children to move their body parts in the appropriate order. Children must be able to control their posture, respond well to stimulation, build balance and coordinate the body.

There are several signs that your little one is experiencing obstacles to gross motor development. For example, they have not achieved skills appropriate for their age, their movements are stiff, they get tired quickly when doing physical activities, cannot sit or stand up straight (bad posture), or the child is unable to follow instructions in physical activities.

If it seems that there are obstacles in the development of children like this, then it must be overcome immediately, yes, ma'am. Because the disruption of gross motor skills in children can have an impact on their daily lives.

In addition to consulting with doctors who deal with child development problems, mothers can reproduce play activities that can hone the child's gross motor skills.

Fine motor skills involve the wrists, ankles and fingers. Fine motor skills greatly affect the results, quality and speed of doing daily tasks. Just like gross motor skills, fine motor skills are also important in children's development and are also very much needed for daily activities, such as buttoning a shirt, brushing teeth or for learning activities such as sticking paper or writing.

Without adequate fine motor skills, children will find it difficult to live independently. For example, children cannot tie their shoes or eat without help. Even at school, children will find it difficult to complete assignments, for example because children need a long time to write and take notes. Furthermore, this can make children become inferior.

What should be built to develop fine motor skills?

For the body to move optimally, good coordination between the eyes and hands is needed, for example for writing. Learn to use the function of the hand, be it one or both hands at once. Also, train the strength of the child's fingers.

What are the characteristics of children experiencing barriers to fine motor development? For example, children may find it difficult to hold stationery or scissors. For older children, a recognizable feature is that children have difficulty writing letters, drawing, or cannot tie their shoes without help.

Another benefit of playing candles is to train children to recognize textures, for example by adding a spoonful of rice, or small balls in the candle. Squeezing candles also builds strength in the child's hands and fingers.

Inviting them to play is one of the exercises in this child's developmental stage. It is necessary for mothers to remember, when children play, they must always be under the supervision of parents. In addition, parents must also participate in playing with children, not allowed to play alone. Good play is at the same time teaching children to interact. Of course, follow the rules of good play, i.e. 'play together, so you are equally happy', or, nothing dominates the game.

If you want your children to be able to move actively, then surely they need to maintain their intake.
