.. My son is 19 months old, for example, if he is told to walk from me to his father a distance of 3 meters he wants to walk, but if he is told to walk alone he doesn’t want to, so if he walks in front of him someone has to wait… why is that? How do I get my child to dare to walk? Thank you in advance

Hello Mommy mila, thanks for the question for HealthReplies.com

Every child has a different stage of development. Children who are just learning to walk will not immediately dare to walk around on their own without their parents. Children will tend to look for parents after walking alone a few steps, to make sure that their parents are nearby. Sometimes, children also don't want to be away from their parents when they are in a crowded place. This is especially true for children with shy personalities or children who rarely see people other than their parents.


You should not have to force your child to walk alone. Keep your child motivated to walk, if your child wants to be held, keep holding your child. You can train your child to walk alone in a quieter place and there are not many people, point to objects in front of him that might attract his attention, such as brightly colored flowers, then motivate your child to walk holding the flower. You can also do this at home by asking your child to pick up a toy lying at the end of the room, for example.


Do not make your child afraid to walk alone by comparing with other children who can walk alone without their parents nearby, or scolding your child if your child keeps clinging and asking to be held. Doing these things can lower a child's self-confidence. On the other hand, a lot of motivation and praise when your child is able to walk on his own will increase his self-confidence and make him more daring to walk away from you.

That's all the information I can give, hopefully it's enough to answer
