legs are onl) too easily formed Let a
child creep as long as It wants to Give
him plenty of room to kick around In,
and he will lie strengthnlng his mus
cles and getting ready for work Sup
pose he Is backward about walking
what difference does It make A child
who follows his own Ideas In learning
to walk will succeed much better, and
learn self-reliance at the same time
The same rule holds good In regard to
sitting up If he ts forced to sit up too
soon It will have a tendency to weaken
his back and Interfere with his growth
Other children should be taught to sit
