Running Barefoot

Some toddlers refuse to keep shoes on their feet, and as it turns out, that may not be such a bad thing!

If you live where your child can run safely on clean grass or sand without shoes, playing barefoot is fine and even beneficial.

Children’s feet develop more flexibility and mobility the less they wear shoes. In cold weather and when there is a risk of broken glass or other sharp objects, animal feces or infective agents on the ground, flexible, well-fitted shoes are necessary.
