Children Love To Run
All children are always and constantly in motion. They are running around most of the time whenever this is possible. Running is a natural way of movement for a human being. Children are yet uninhibited by social norms so they exercise the movement without thinking. They simply do it.
It is because of us adults, their parents and teachers that they stop running. We constantly order them to be still and quiet which is completely wrong. Without running they are losing their freedom of body and mind.
It is a joy watching children run. They float above the ground. They move in a natural way. So don't stop them. Let them run. Let them be children for as long as it is possible.
