Posture is extremely important for your child as it promotes good health of her bones. Having a good posture is absolutely necessary for your child from the start as it can get difficult for her to make changes later on. Help her have the right posture right from the beginning.

1. If your child is tall, she may begin to hunch her back as she walks. This is quite natural among all tall people. Your child may not do it deliberately, but this can be developed as a habit without her knowledge and can affect her health later on. Always let her know that she should not hunch her back.

2. Appreciation generally helps, you can remark upon how tall she is and how amazing her height is. Keep mentioning it to her until she corrects it. Show her what is the right way of walking with correct posture.

3. Slouchy shoulders are also very common while walking. Let your child know the negatives of having a bad posture. Let her understand how badly it can affect her health. The fear of falling ill will help her remember that bad posture is wrong at all times.

4. It can be awfully tiring for you and your child to deal with this, but this is really going to help later on as she will have a great posture at the end of it. Don’t worry and lose patience, always make it a point to tell her over and over if she needs to correct her posture.
