A mother of two kids wants you to know that they can walk on hills and mountains at any age.
But a recent study suggests they’re not really ready to walk in a hiking shoe.
According to a new study, nearly half of the kids in the study did not use hiking shoes when walking in the lab.
And, even after researchers adjusted for the size of the shoes and the child’s height, the kids still didn’t walk in them when they were walking.
“We’re not sure what we’re going to do about it, but we’re hoping this helps parents understand that they should really try to get their kids to wear hiking shoes, because they really can’t be on a mountain or in a water park,” said study co-author Elizabeth Roesch, a professor of pediatrics at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.
While this study does not definitively link wearing hiking shoes to shorter walking times, Roesck and her colleagues believe that it highlights the need for parents to think about how they want to raise their children.
“The kids need to be able to move around the house in the world, and there is a lot of work that goes into that,” Roesh said.
“Hiking shoes are really the only way to do that.
But if you think about it and think about the impact they have on your kids, then you can get a better idea of whether you want to get them out on the trail and what they’re looking forward to doing in the outdoors.”
Kids need to have the flexibility to be outdoors, tooThe study looked at kids ages 3 to 12 and measured their walking, running and climbing abilities as they navigated through different environments.
The researchers found that more than two-thirds of the children in the hiking study did better than the average in terms of speed, distance and distance covered.
The same amount of time was also spent climbing in elevation, with the children of both genders walking at the same elevation.
Children ages 3-6 years were also more likely to have experienced “moderate to high-impact” experiences when hiking in the wilderness, compared to kids ages 5 to 7 years.
They also tended to have more trouble walking on hills, while older kids tended to walk on grass.
In addition, the study found that parents who allowed their children to go hiking outdoors for fun, such as on weekends, had the lowest rates of skipping activities altogether.
The authors suggest that parents should try to find out if hiking is something they’re interested in, and then find a hike that’s easy and fun for their kids.
“I think parents have to be conscious of how much they spend on their kids, and what kind of activities they enjoy doing, and make sure they’re doing the things that they’re comfortable with,” Riosch said.
When kids are outdoors, they can easily get lost.
“It’s really easy to go out and spend a lot more time on your phone than on your child.
And the kids can do that in a very different way,” Riesch said, adding that the average outdoor activity of children ages 3 years and younger is about 10 minutes.
If your child is looking to hike and wants to explore the outdoors, you might want to make sure your hiking shoes are designed for your child’s foot size and size, Riosh said, pointing to the size recommendations for hiking boots.
