Falling from the floor

by

Kids are sitting playing on the floor and then in the next minute there is screaming, crying and they are hurt. I race in and try and understand what had happened.

After they calm down a bit I finally find out they have fallen over. YES, fallen while they were sitting on the floor. HOW DOES THIS HAPPEN? Cut legs, hurt feet and bruises. I really don’t get how they can get so hurt from sitting down? Does this happen to you?  This has been happening for years now and it is still making me scratch my head to understand how it happens.

I don’t know if my kids are a talented lot, or if this is something that all kids do? Do your kids manage to fall over when on the floor? What a talented feet have they mastered that they still manage to hurt themselves. I know it is not a skill that is a good thing to have.

I am still at a loss to explain how it happens. Do you have any insight into this? Can you explain why they can fall so close to the floor already? It really is a mystery. Send in your comments.

    That’s also a mystery to me. Perhaps it’s really a phase in a kid’s growing stage. There are lessons they will learn from this, though bumping the head or the back is really a concern for us parents. All the best for you 🙂

      Yes Julie I am not understanding why it happens either. I do agree that it is a stage they are going through. Both are still young so hope it will stop soon! Thanks for the comment. Suzanne

      Yes it is strange… I appear to have the only known kids that fall while sitting down. 🙂 I am sure this is a phase they will grow out of.

What do you think?
