Role of RC Toys in Helping Kids
A year later we realized something was terribly wrong with her. She seemed to have problems with moving and could barely stand unlike other children. This became a thing of concern and we took her to a healthcare center where she was diagnosed with cerebral palsy. The general practitioner that checked on her advised that it was minor and that we soon could get over it. She was scheduled for some locomotive therapy sessions which we ensured that she never missed.
Do you Know Toys Can Help a Kid Move Around, I Didn’t?
Our busy schedules at work however became more strenuous and my husband and I felt that we weren’t giving her the attention that she deserved. We really wanted her bones to get a bit stronger. There was this pain in me whenever I saw how hard she tried to get up and thus when we sought more clinical advice, we decided to purchase a mobile stander, which would give her more time to walk around and consequently improve on her bone mineral density (BMD) so that she could have stronger bones to be able to stand.
There was this fear in me that she would never walk around. Therefore, I personally took no precaution in heeding all the advice there. Two months on the stander, I was impatient because I wasn’t noticing any improvement. As a matter of fact, she loathed being at the stander and preferred to just sit around and play with whatever was around her.
This really depressed me and made me seek more action. A nurse who used to take her for locomotive therapy sessions advised me to buy her some moving toys. I didn’t have much but to heed to the advice and that when the choice of purchasing some remote controlled toys came dawned on me.
RC Toys Helped Encourage my Daughter to Take Action
That was it and it marked the dawn of a new era. Anna seemed to have a peculiar interest in these moving RC devices and whenever I played with her, she would try to support herself on the stander and go after them. I realized that that was her secret sauce. It helped her moved around and if I was to go by the world of the GP, the movements were paramount in helping her improve her BMD.
Actually it worked. We played together for almost six months and each day she was improving. Whenever I took her to the healthcare center they noted the improvement and that motivated me to help her more. I even started teaching her how to use the operating console, although she seemed to love it when I worked on the controls and left her to run after the toys.
Two years into this, I must confess that the RC toys have really helped her. Although she still has locomotive dysfunctions, she loves playing with the toys by herself and has greatly improved on her health. I bet that one day she will be at a position to lead a normal life as she plays around with the RC toys.
