Mam filmed her little girl enjoying spinning as she listens to music at home. Did you know that spinning is essential for younger children? It helps them learn how to balance, and where they are in relation to everything around them. It supports their vestibular system. Toddlers do not feel the same as adults when they spin. Adults can feel very sickly when spinning, but it is not the same for our toddlers. Good to know when working with or parenting two year olds, hey?
