When we talk about gross motor skills, we talk about things like standing up, sitting, running, jumping, and even coordinate eye-hand movements to catch a ball. It is important to develop these skills to use them in our daily life. We will need them to get dressed, for example.
Sometimes we don't care about gross motor skills development, which is an essential part of our lives.
There are many ways to know if a child has gross motor skills problems, as a delay in the ability to get sit, crawl, run, jump, always fall over when doing physical activities, poor coordination, and insecurity.
At home, we should provide children with resources that will help them with this process. Parents must be pending on their development and have to encourage them to make them feel confident when doing some of these activities.
